Terrific snowpack is developing in Girdwood Valley with the opening of Alyeska's North Face this week super early in the season. Still pockets of untracked can be found on lower 1/2 of North Face 2 days after the latest storm.
Dr. Snow caught up with Kruser & yours truly. Made a few runs with co-workers. Saw a lot of the Tram crowd, but Mark and Marcy weren't around - I heard Marcy had a foot problem; if that's the case, hope it heals up soon!
Excellent day of skiing had a sad ending as a fatal accident happened on the Seward Highway just west of Girdwood. A lot of people crash on the Seward Highway - Maybe the aggro drivers should take it down a notch, and the super slow drivers that stack up traffic behind them should pick it up a bit. We all need to be vigilant on the Seward Highway.
