Ya I know, but there are tons of shuttles from that airport to Pow Mow. I actually just found some to Northstar too. Now that's back in the mix. Now I gotta choose between the three. I'm just gonna pick out of a hat. Would Alyeska be to muhc of a challenge for a first trip rider. I know it's not terribly steep. That and I don't know what the groomers are like.

If you really wanted someone to ride with you might be able to find someone on meetup local to the mt., same goes if you are looking for someone to travel with and split costs

I have no problems going alone. Its peaceful and no waiting on others. Almost went to Stowe alone last year, but a friend ended up going last minute. I may have an alone trip this year too... Do it and have fun....

Do you guys bring along with you the avalanche emergency gear, like the ARVA transceiver, shovel, etc, when you go powder skiing/ off piste alone?

Bring it, on deep days there are places in-bounds that you can not ride with out avy gear

As for riding alone...it gives you the opportunity to meet locals and get some stash....the problem is keeping up with them.

I ride most of the time by myself. I ride out of bounds.

Just don't go bombin' over shit, when you don't know what's on the other side.

You'll be fine.

Apparently my balls are too big, would you like to trade one?
Just fuckin' wit chya, don't get all bent.


TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality
