words and photos by Travis Ganong (yes, he took these pics of himself skiing from the heli)
Wow we nailed it with the timing here in AK! For three days before we got here it was raining and foggy, and then Tom Day, Danny Day and myself show up and BAM!, the first two days of the trip are blue bird and amazing. My first time here to Points North Heli in Cordova, and my first time filming with Warren Miller, and Im like,”Wow I guess its always sunny in Alaska!”
Haha-It looks like the luck is on our side with the weather. The trip has started out well with some amazing conditions and we are already pushing it pretty hard. I am lucky enough to be shredding with Mitch Toelderer, an amazing big mountain snowboarder from Innsbruck who charges as hard as anyone and is a super humble person to be with in the mountains.
I am learning a lot from him and its fun to start pushing it a little! All these photos on this post were taken by Mitch! Thanks Mitch, and nice work yesterday sending the first run ever down “The Rattlesnake”. That was burly! It looks like sun for another few days so ill try and send an update soon!
