It is sunny and beautiful in Juneau and I am looking forward to getting on my skis. Today I am sharing a photograph that is full of essence. It is a low vantage point of a skate skier’s foot. I find myself amazed at how much this ski boot is expressing. There is so much […]

This morning as I was checking my Facebook feed, this is what the Eaglecrest Ski Area homepage posted, “Over 24 inches of wet heavy snow since Monday! Snow and weather conditions will delay the opening of our lifts this morning. Patrol will be doing control work on the entire mountain – no uphill access above […]

We have gotten over a foot of snow during the past couple of days. As a skier I should be ecstatic, but I find myself feeling grumbly and frustrated. Part of me wants to tell myself; “…itsa notso bad, aw shuttuppa yo face!” like that old silly song. (You don’t know what I’m talking about […]

The ground is covered with snow and I am certain that the mountain is freshly blanketed after last night, but I have a recipe that I would like to share with you before I head up to Eaglecrest. My kids can’t eat wheat, are allergic to eggs and nuts, and my son can’t have dairy. […]

I was compelled to head up to Eaglecrest early this morning to look for some untracked snow after the two day closure, but by the time I was done with some morning business on the computer it was snowing like mad. Now I don’t feel so rushed to get up to the mountain and enjoy […]

No paddle, don’t need one; I’ve got my skis. Checking out the Juneau Nordic Ski Club Trail Condition Forum yesterday before heading out to the Mendenhall Valley revealed that one of the volunteer track-setters was planning on heading out to set a track at Montana Creek. Eager to check out that trail, I made a […]

My daughter has a day off from school because of parent/teacher conferences and I managed to pry her away from her Anime so we could go for a ski. At sea level it is still rainy and wet, but it has been snowing steadily at the base of Eaglecrest and higher. The downhill area is […]

Little Man Learns to Ski

Sunday is the day that I focus on furthering my kids’ skills on skis. My daughter skis with the local 4H nordic ski club and I ski with my son during that time. The little man was first out on skis a couple of years ago. We put his skis in the tracks and he […]

More snow fell on Eaglecrest last night and I headed up to do some downhill and cross-country skiing. The sun broke through the fog just as I got to the top and I went in search of some untouched powder. I got a little mad at myself for being chicken on a steep chute, but […]
