To look upon it, one wouldn’t have thought it, but Alyeska Resort skied AWESOME today. The mat-white cap to a Friday otherwise characterized by fluctuating cloud lent a somewhat flat (if not all out blind) first impression to Alaska’s premier ski area, but be not fooled.

Shifting cloud, and view that never gets old.

The smoke layer ranged like a Dall Sheep across Mount Alyeska faces; there one minute but gone the next, revealing all too grip-able and rip-able snow On as well as Off Piste.

Skiing proved as aggressive as it was rewarding, mountain-wide. North Face (top to bottom), High Traverse, and Chilkoot Knoll were open, and while well-skied no less skied well.

As 1st looks go…

Today’s skiing was a gift, wrapped in plain white whisps.

This is Paulie at Girdwood advising: grab the clear lense and SKI!
