Alaska Backcountry: WINTER EDITION!
An Alaskan winter weekend getaway. Far out past the Maclaren River Lodge, off the Denali highway, lies some of the best territory for snow-machining and ice fishing. We got into some fresh powder, got our lines wet, and of course drank some beer...

Steep Lines and Plenty of Ice: Almost Live Presented by Gore-Tex Products Episode 6 Season 6
For big mountain skiers, Alaska serves as a source of inspiration and the ultimate proving ground. Crews of athletes and filmers head to the Last Frontier each year in search of steep lines and deep snow. This past winter, however, rumors circulated that many of the state's mountain ranges were plagued with a shit storm of ice. Upon exploring the area surrounding Juneau, Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Angel Collinson, and Dana Flahr found these rumors to be true.
Nonetheless, these subpar conditions served as a catalyst for exploration—and a test of everyone's ability to adapt. Luckily, the crew was in good hands thanks to Alaska Powder Descents. The company's guides led the the crew to a range of zones in the Taku Range. And this fresh terrain brought rewards—without ice.

900' level rappell
A condensed version of a rappell to the 900' level of a significantly deeper (1300') mine shaft in order ro recover a dozen discarded powder boxes from the late 1920's and early 1930's. For those wanting to know, I did not complete the entire rappell in one rope-glazing pass with the STOP decender. I got off-rope at strategic spots to allow my decender to cool.

The Edge...There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others-the living-are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there.
