Greetings East Idaho Off Piste! I appreciate the posts and hearing what folks are up to. Seems like Old Man Winter needs a little more encouragment right about now… so I thought I’d post some pictures from a trip to Valdez, Alaska last spring. I work as mountain guide here in Sun Valley, and went to AK to take my AMGA Ski Moutaineering Course and Aspirant Exam. All total, I was in AK about 3 weeks. Based in Valdez, we toured the Thompson Pass area almost exclusively, with one heli-drop on the Tonsina Glacier for a 3 day tour back to TP. All in all it was a fantastic, although very challenging experience. I ended up passing the Aspirant Exam and am planning to return this spring to take the Ski Mountaineering Exam, (the final exam so to speak). I hope people enjoy the photos and Ullar gets the message that we mean business here in Idaho!
