Valdez: Spring Skiing on Thompson Pass

June 5th, 2009

Nice view of Odyssey... or previous line is visible on the far right.

The morning before the wedding and the day we drove out of town we skiing up on Thompson Pass. The first day was only my girlfriend’s second day backcountry skiing ever, so we did a pretty mild and short run on the East side the road, on the shoulder of Odyssey. The second day was similar, but on the West side to mix it up, near the glacier. Both days were beautiful and sunny, with stunning views of the Chugach. Here are some pictures!
