Alyeska, day one

Today, Miles and I skiied Alyeska for the first time. Alyeska is a resort about 40 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska. If you’ve ever seen a Warren Miller or Matchstick Productions Film, you probably are aware of Chugach Mountain Guides which operate out of the same area.

The snow is pretty much the best I’ve skiied in my entire life. The mountain received 34 inches on Monday, 30 inches on Tuesday, and then about 6 inches per day since. That is a lot of snow.

We did 25.5k feet of vertical in 20 runs all over the mountain — and had fresh tracks most of the day. Tomorrow, the goal is to ski from 10:30 am to 9 pm and break 40k feet of vertical.
