The Presidents

Sucker Hole (n): a fleeting patch of blue sky in an otherwise overcast sky.

Despite significant snow accumulation in the Anchorage Bowl (reports of nearly 22" on the Hillside), I did the reverse commute from our Talkeetna palace to Hatcher Pass to meet my brutha from anotha motha - Vance.  Hopefully some after work ski outings will bring face shots and blue can call me whatever you want, but don't call me late for dinner.

We parked it at the Archangel lot after doing a recky of the Indy lot.  We decided to head back down the pass after seeing the carnage on the west face of Marmot and other slopes.  With clear skies and cold temps, we were underway.  About mid mountain we were greeted with fast moving clouds and flurries making the uptrack rather difficult.

As we topped out, the view improved, said sucker hole appeared, and we peeled just below the summit that overlooks the Rae-Wallace bowl.

Vancy Pants slashing...

 Yours truly with LB in hot pursuit.  Making nice with dust on crust with pockets of enjoyable.
The day ended with some Kodiak Brown's on the tailgate and soaking in that sunshine.  We also caught up with Eddie from HYT.

I apologize for the lack of content....well not really; but i'll get back in the saddle once life calms the eff down.  Until fast, take chances.
