Sunshine to the Max

From the Seward Highway, Max's Mountain

Begin with the end of a wonderful day of sunshine on Max's. Skin track is on looker's left.

Lap 3

Yesterday's skiers dug a few pits. One loud settlement whoomphed in the forest at 1400 ft el, but otherwise no signs of instability. I stayed above 2300 ft el until the last run.

Today's laps were 1200 ft vert on a nice low angle, multi-lap track.

Alyeska looks small from Max's.
