Thanks. Being in the banks I'm far from Aleyska - one person I know said they go down to do backcountry near Valdez every year. I learned to snow on ice practically -but had a decent time fairing Brighton and Sundance in UT last year. I'm close to CHS (well, close as in 50 miles), so I'll try that this winter. Let me know when you make it up this way I'd love to go boarding with someone who knows the ropes. I definately don't have a network of boarders here yet.
Life will pass you by if you don't jump on.
