Valdez is hungover today after the heavy drinking session following the King of the Hill awards ceremony, with Travis Rice and Vera Janssen taking the home the massive swords as King and Queen of the Hill. This is all part of the two week Tailgate Alaska event.
We have been having an amazing time with 6 sunny days of the last 8, with another high pressure coming in tomorrow night. We will spend a couple of more days hitting lines we have picked out with sleds, then fly with ABA ( http://www.alaskabackcountry.com/) on Wednesday to hit a couple of classic AK lines.
This trip is a must for any skier or snowboarder with any budget. Cheap heli bumps, sled shuttles, unbelievable terrain, great like minded people all enjoy Thompson Pass and everything Valdez has to offer. Huge props to Mark Sullivan and the Tailgate Alaska crew. Big thanks to Jeremy at Mountain Sky hotel for sorting out great accomodation. www.mountainskyhotel.com
