Reaching the top of Marmot it was hard to ignore the opportunity to ski in the sunshine. We ignored a steep shot to the North and backtracked a little to an untouched leeward slope. It felt great to ski in the sunshine and without a cloud in the sky you could see far enough ahead to open it up a bit. It was too good not to go back up.
We set the skinner up a ridge between the shot we skied and another untouched shot to the South. The light snow made for light work but not without some tough kick turns. We skied the shot to the South and headed back to the car. Another few feet of snow and the Skier Boyz Alaska Chapter will be doing some serious exploratory work in this area. Keep it coming AK…we’re ready.
