Well, I'll be riding around here, Thompson Pass and the Valdez area. Hopefully we'll also make it over to Turnagain Pass, which I haven't been to, and maybe Summit Lake up closer to Fairbanks (where they hold Arctic Man). There should be decent to excellent riding from late October until early June, and I'm probably going to be off work from late November until mid March, so it should be easy to get 100 days in this year. Only problem is that there aren't many tree runs for flat-light days (which we get a lot of), since treeline is around 2500 feet.

I'm super excited to have a splitboard now and be able to get uphill faster and (hopefully) more easily. I can't wait to start trying some bigger runs, and to be able to get more runs in each day.

Whoops, just noticed this was in the NW region forum. Well, we're pretty far northwest anyways.
