Epic Eddie's!

The snow is finally here....and it is good.

The plan was to stay local. And now the fun begins...

After cross loading gear, changing the plan, and getting coffee at Jitters....

Jon Page and I head to Turnagain Pass to get the goods. Lots of instabilities existed, so we play it safe and slog it out to Eddie's. However, every time I go to Eddie's, I have an epic day. Today was no different.

Jon heading in on the skintrack.

Lobita heading in on the skintrack.

This is what the Chugach is known for. Heavy wet storms that stick to EVERYTHING! And then clear and cold....the result is cold smoke powder!!

LB is bounding and postholing through the hellza deep gnar pow. She is officially tattered after the first run. We arrived late, but managed three stellar runs. Two more to go!!

Jon hucking his meat off of a cornice.

Me cruising through the meadows and trees. F-U-N!

A nice shot of Tincan in the background and the fading November sunset.

Jon on the way back to the truck. Damn that's a lot of snow.

Lobita looking for the shortcut. What shortcut?

Best day of the year. Silky smooth powder, no surprises.

As Jon calls it, "Hero Snow."

Nuff said.

Johnson out.
