Well, it's been a rainy and cold summer in Alaska, which means earlier-than-normal glacier skiing :-) A group of us headed up to the Lane Glacier near Hatcher Pass for what turned out to be totally legitimate powder skiing! We got 4 runs in before calling it a day and hiking out in a blizzard! There were tons of people up there, but it was actually fun to see the early-season enthusiasm and there was still plenty of good snow to be found for freshies!

Seasons in transition . . . lovely fall colors!

Getting closer to winter . . .

Oh, how we love Alaska skiing in zero vis! Thankfully we had pockets of better light :-)

Forest won the award for style :-) It was his birthday weekend, after all!

It looks like you were up there the same time as we were. It was by far the most popular September day I've witnessed on the Lane.

Crow Pass should be getting good!

Tried to find some alpine ice climb up Archangel this weekend. No luck. Looks like we should have gone skiing instead.... So that's what all the cars were doing there
