Chugach Dawn Patrol

We rallied early.  Local powder extraordinaire Meesh and I linked up at the AVSA parking lot just before 8am.  With the objective of the shady north aspects of Gordon Lyon and the Nike Missile silo ridge line, we made quick time up Center Bowl.  Although the refresh gave us 14" of soft snow, the wind did some damage and built some pretty sizable wind slabs.
"Meesh just changed his cover photo..."
There was quite a temperature inversion, so we were enjoying the sunshine and gentle breeze.  We decided to live to ski another day, and treated those wind loaded slopes with respect.  Each entrance we scouted had some pretty deep gnarly looking slabs guarding them.  So we skied back down Tequila Bowl - which was very good considering the recent weather conditions.  Despite a few tracks, we found soft snow back to the cat track.

Two MNSBC Kodiak Brown's were strategically placed in the bed of my truck, which tasted really good at the crack of 10am on a Saturday.

A "rex block" is currently giving us lots of bluebird days.  I expect to see some huge lines put down as the CNFAIC has issued a "LOW" avalanche danger.  The Shrink and I are going to ski some corduroy at the resort.  Stay safe fast, take chances!
