Snowboarding - AK

A few pictures from snowboarding in the Chugiak range about 45 miles north of Valdez Alaska. The boarding was not as technically difficult as we expected, but it was really fun. It was a great early start to the next year's adventures and hence the place to start this blog. 

One of those dots is not like the others.

As I was returning the avalanche gear one of the associates dropped the standard "safety is our number one priority" line. That puzzled me a bit, so I pointed out that if being safe was really her first priority, there were much safer careers than helicopter ski guiding. She thought about it for a second and agreed that safety is a good number two priority. Thinking about that conversation a couple days later I realized I knew what to call this blog.
