We are currently sitting in the middle of the weather window (March 25-April 1) for final stop of the Natural Selection Tour in Valdez, Alaska. The NST crew is currently on the ground in AK couting venue options, loading gear and shoveling, lots of shoveling. Here’s a look back at last year’s event and all the hard work it took to put on a competition in a remote backcountry location:
LATEST UPDATE FROM VALDEZ:
The NST crew is on the ground in Valdez, AK prepping for the final stage of the Tour – scouting venue options, loading gear and shoveling, lots of shoveling. The weather window for the Backcountry Natural Selection at Valdez is March 25 – April 1. The competition will run on one day within that window when Mother Nature decides. The weather in Valdez is highly variable, especially recently and safety is our top priority so it is vital that our crew spends time in the field and that the snow conditions and weather align before selecting GO DAY.
