Alaska Day 1

Got into Anchorage after midnight, Mike picked up me and crashed at Adam’s place.

Got up built a loft bed for Mike’s new pickup, we are planning on spending a few nights sleeping in the truck and now it will be sleeping luxury.

Mike, Adam, I  and headed to Turnagain pass.   We went avalanche safety and did some practice runs burying the beacon in the snow and using the other 2 to find it.

After I was all trained in,  we decided to put on the skins and climb up on to Sunburst Mountain.  It was my first time using the skins on any kind of vertical incline…  I did some sliding backwards a few times and tipping over, but I started to get the hang of it.

The day was awesome with a clear blue sky and warm weather.  We all were in tshirts and unzipped snowpants and it was still plently toasty.

I was exhausted by the end.  But we made it to the top after a 3 hour climb.  Then we took off the skins had a rest and got ready for the big ride back down.   It took all of 15 minutes and got it was a blast in the nice powder!
