If you can get a job at the sits you can get a season pass out of the deal too.


My usual haunt in Hatcher Pass. Is this area in your pics in the Turnigan Pass area? I have been wanting to explore this area.

I am planning my trip this year for early March. Last year, I went in late March and it was about 2 weeks past prime so moving it up a bit. Let`s stay in touch as I always bring the split with me and will be looking for new areas; especially Turnigan Pass....[/QUOTE]

I went to hatchers 2 days out of 70+ backcountry days last season, its sucks more then its good in my opinion. The pass has more snow and better lines i think. maybe ill see you up here this year.

Hey, I've never said I didn't want to go. Logistically it's more of a pain than say a trip to Washington. I don't think I'll be making it to Alaska this season either, but maybe. I've always known it's pretty great up there. These pics are a good reminder.

At this point it's getting a little redundant, but those pics are absolutely stunning and breathtakingly beautiful. I hoe to be able to get out there one day.

Wow... now I'm getting really stoked. Thanks for the pics

Will stay in AK next spring, still figuring out the exact plan, so far I intend to spend around 5 days in Aly. Studied the lift map and vids, looks like a great place.
Would be great to meet someone of you


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

Very, very nice as usual Larry! I'm guessing Turnagain Pass? Been meaning to make it down there. I have toured Hatcher Pass as well as in the Alaska Range near Paxon. Around here, there is some nice areas but nothing on that scale!
