We arrived in Anchorage at a little before 4 pm and after haggling with the rental car service to give us a car that had a fold-down for the back seat so we could put our skis in the car we were off on the road with a sketch-ball car with crappy tires, sliding our way around Anchorage. A quick stop at Costco lead to dinner with our friend Ralph. We didn’t arrive to our friend Kellie’s house in Girdwood until 10:30 pm, after midnight Colorado time. Having been awake since 3:30 in the morning, the last thing I wanted to do was go backcountry skiing. But, our friend Colin wanted to show us the goods. The goods were worth it.
Tired after our travels and satisfied after 5500’+ vertical of backcountry skiing for the day, we relished in powder dreams. Needless to say, we went to sleep with smiles on our faces. Many thanks to Colin and Colin for showing us around!
