Max Tracks

Max's Mountain overlooks Girdwood and provides a portal to some incredible ski country in southcentral Alaska. Eruk and I followed the Virgin Creek Trail from the end of Timberline Drive through the dense and steep hemlock forest up to the glade on Max's flank and on to the weather station at Max's summit (aka Baumann's bump.) The west face of Max's had ten lines on it. While Eruk and I gazed at panaroma, we saw two skiers drop down the north face of the southerly ridge above Virgin Creek. There were tracks on Little League and Big League, and we watched three people ascend Little League and ski over the ridge out of sight.
