It’s hot here in southern California right now as I sit mid summer sweating looking through my photos from last winter to cool off. I came across some pictures I took in Alaska this past April while working as a guest host with the Chugash Powder Guides. It was my first time flying with them and the experience was amazing. First it’s really easy to get to the operation based out of the hotel Aleyeska. It’s just about an hour drive from Anchorage to Girdwood along the scenic Turnagain Arm. The hotel itself is amazing, a timeless design that has all the luxuries you expect from a worldclass resort, good restaurants, a huge indoor pool and even a really fun sushi bar.
The terrain in Alaska is vast and there is literally something for everyone. I was lucky and arrived during a high pressure that lasted all week and got a chance to see and ride a lot of the amazing terrain they have to offer. As a guest host I rotated with the different groups of guests and met some really good people and had some good times with the crew on and off the snow.
Big thanks to Chris Owens, the team at Epicquest and all the Chugash Powder Guides.
