Breaking Trail

January 24, 2012


It snowed well into the night last night in Juneau and I thought it would be a good time to go check out a trail that I have never been on when it’s snowy. A seven-minute drive got me to the head of the Dan Moller trail on Douglas Island across Gastineau Channel from Juneau. […]

A Day of Fish, Wine and Skiing

January 23, 2012


I made it out on my downhill boards today and the snow was falling hard the whole time I was on the mountain. Each run was a freshy with crud chunks mixed in, and all in all a good day. I rode up with a woman who is preparing to go to Alta for a […]

In Search of the Perfect Stride

January 22, 2012

When I Go to Winthrop…

January 19, 2012


Juneau is still clear and sunny and I plan on getting out on my classical skis for a good stride while the snow is cold and the kick is good, but I have been looking into what a winter trip to the Methow Valley would be like. I first heard about the area when I […]

Living the Dream

January 17, 2012


What can I say? I had a day of skiing that did not conjure dreams of skiing somewhere else in the world. We have not had precipitation of any kind to cover the ice rink state of the trails at sea level, but a drive of 20 minutes or less gets me to plenty of […]
