Here we go again :jumping1:
Arrived in AK after an awsome "stop-over" in CO. First heli lifted off -flap-flap-flap - and the heart beat goes up already. So stoked for the next days!



Gear's ready for tomorrow - yay!


BTW: Our boards are the Jones' 156 Mothership, and 164 Carbon Flagship.

Hope you see some awesome conditions. Btw, I see you two aren't the only ones "keepin' up with the Jones's!" ;)

I was told there isnt much snow in Alaska...
At sea level there's no snow :(, but they had several snowfall days last week, so "up there" should be plenty :hope:

Did hubby get his much needed rest?!?
Today in the airplanes - that should be enough :D

Day 1 - hmmmm...

After a wonderful evening...

Mountains get pounded - yay - but we'll have the first down day. A day to relax and fill up the batteries :happy:
Tho... forecast looks bit like more rest days... :dry:

Haha, been thinking the same. 17 snowboards - 11 of them are Jones Flagships/Motherships of guys all over the world :happy:

I've always been very attracted to the looks of Jones's boards. But that right there probably says a lot about how well they perform in "Big Mountain" riding! :D

Hope the snow is simply awesome on the AK leg of your trip! :cheer:

"Down days" in AK are the norm.
Yeah... you're right. We've been spoiled with the continuous bluebird up here last year... tho, there's no pow without a storm, so yeah, I rather take this more AK like weather with down days AND chances for deep pow than the endless sun n crusts like last time :).

3ft of fresh since we arrived... still pounding this night. Chances that we'll have a flight window tomorrow. Gosh, I'm antsy! :bug: :hope:
