BACK FROM ALASKA

by

I just got back from 24 days in Alaska with 19 of the them spent out camping and riding on the glaciers. I was there with Jeremy Jones, Lucas Debarri, Ryland Bell, Josh Dirksen, and Xavier Delerue. We found a zone with incredible terrain with spines. Here are a few pictures of the general area (you are just seeing one corner of the terrain we had to ride). The riders all teed off and threw down, stepping up their spine game. We had one major storm cycle which dropped 6 plus feet of snow and buried our camp and we had winds that were bending our tents and snapping tent poles. We lived through it and got great condition out the back of the storm as well as before the storm. This was one dream come true as far as conditions and terrain.

THIS IS OUR CAMP WITH THE GULF OF ALASKA IN THE BACKGROUND.

Jeremy checking out how big the begrshrund had gotten in a week. We had walked right across this spot seven days earlier. Now we had to find a new snow bridge to cross as the glaciers were on the move.
