Moving forward from one year ago today, many highlights come to mind. The first being the overwhelming response to the comment period that commenced after the EPA opened it’s draft Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment to public review. I had the privilege of witnessing two of the meetings that took place within the Bristol Bay region […]

A year has passed and then some since my first post in fish*wine*ski and I didn’t want the whole month of January to go by without posting something. I have been enjoying a little of each of my favorite things, but not a lot of any. It’s all right, it’s okay, my love for fish, […]

After over a week of dry and sunny weather in Juneau, which I made the most of, we awoke to snow this morning. Snow at sea-level covering our cars and blowing sideways through the cast of the streetlights. I knew it was time to try for some skiing so I loaded up our dog and […]

I don’t have a picture to show off what I finally witnessed this season, but the feeling for those who know and appreciate what I am talking about is enough. It has been raining like mad at sea level in Juneau and I have been wondering what is happening on the mountaintops, but it has […]

Little tundra blueberries are a flavor-packed miracle to experience. I have found them in the tundra of Bristol Bay and interior Alaska, but have had the most luck finding them in Alpine environments. It’s a nice coincidence for me that the best berry patches I have found are adjacent to ski areas I have enjoyed […]

It’s better than no snow at all. I just had to satisfy my curiosity and head up to the Lower Meadow at Eaglecrest. My effort proved to be worthwhile as the snow still covered the whole loop. Wherever the tracks were laid earlier this season there are strips of snow that are raised a […]

I am realizing more and more what a unique situation we have here in Juneau. Most of this winter we found ourselves in very manageable snow conditions at sea level, but if you climbed or drove a bit higher in elevation more than enough snow for skiing was available. That is still the case despite […]

It’s the last day of Spring Break and it is a gorgeous day in Juneau. It has been really nice having some extra time with my daughter and we had a lot of fun skiing with her brother yesterday. He gets really motivated to try and keep up with her when we are all out […]

I’ve been having fun getting out with my kids on skis. It is pure pleasure watching them build up their skills and innovate in their own ways. Every time my son goes down a hill on his cross-country skis I remind him to bend his knees so his body can brace itself for the acceleration. […]
