I wish I could afford to head down there from Fairbanks! Skiland needs another 6 inches to open... everyone else is open but you gotta really want to shred to go.. like I have been! haha!

I would be making a weekend trip if I wasnt having to buy my Feb ticket to Colorado this payday. Anchorage is getting dumped... nobody is getting in or not right now.

Life will pass you by if you don't jump on.

I know february is a long way away, but you don't really want to come south of mt. baker any time soon.

why waste your money on colorado when the rockies are bone dry and alaska is one of the only places in the world getting any snow?

I heard that CO has been having a decent season so far... I'm sure by Feb it'll be good. I am meeting friends there that go every year... ski in/ski out condo... I only have to buy my ticket and lift pass... and they are excited for me to bring some alaskan salmon and moose with me

Dang you! I just found out yesterday I am flying to Anchorage for work Feb 1-2 and am going to take that weekend and stay there.

In saying that... if anyone wants to board Alyeska the first weekend in Feb, hit me up!

I just moved to Anchorage from California to attend, decided to pick up snowboarding with the move. Turned out to be pretty good timing...



Bottom of chair 6



Top of chair 6



more from the top of 6, earlier in the day



and a shot from the drive on the seward highway because **** yeah alaska

And can I just say that, as someone in their first season, Alyeska blues are gnarly

Oh and these pictures were technically on one of the bad days, with no new snow. Still had a great time, I found some powder stashes off trail in the lower bowl and my more advanced friends tore up huge amounts of untracked pow off Max's traverse (Alyeska's southern peak)

Quick question, how much does a trip to Alaska usually run you cash wise?
