A fresh inch was worthy on Backdoor Trail from Cindy's Stuckagain Skihaus up to Chugach State Park. The park trails made me appreciate my metal edges on the trusty Fischer Outtabounds Waxbase.
With abundant foot traffic, the park trails are pretty scritchy, and fast. Near Point and Middle Fork Trails ski OK, though a little rough with frozen footsteps under the fresh inch. Though snow conditions are below average, the calm wind, quiet and sunshine made for a thoroughly enjoyable ski.
