    Well, another flight from Sydney to Canberra and I sat next to another cute girl who skis a lot. She had a countdown on her smartphone saying how many days it is to the ski season...

    She said it wasn't too early to get the ski gear out to check before the Alaskan trip:metun:

    One day I'll find one that is unattached...

    @Nozawaman conditions aren't great at PNH at the moment :(

    From fb...

    The past two weeks have been nothing short of challenging. Currently high winds are blasting the zone in the 60-80mph range with temps down around the -30F with the given wind chill. Things do change as we all know. The Chugach can litterally change over night. We just need it in the forecast. Current forecast has bluebird cold conditions with winds for another several days...stay tuned

    &

    Not skiable, not safe at the moment....Supposed to snow next week, fingers crossed...!

    Glad we're not up there at the moment.

    That is a real shame.
    Hoping for snow and quick DSNS.

    The crew in the other heli in Chile had some tales to tell of 0 day trips in a number of locations. PB and I felt bad for them just in the retelling, and these guys are doing at least one trip a year! I was so looking forward to this trip for you, be a damn shame if it doesn't come off :cry:

    Stay positive. You'll be fine.

    The DPS crew are further south in Haines at the moment and they're getting some decent runs in.

    Fingers crossed for you.

    Apprehensive, worried, happy, frightened, fearful, excited, confident, scared... take your pick.

    I think that once I get some skis strapped on I'll be right, but until then...

    I picked up some American greenback today, all planning and preparations are done. Wheels up in 6 days.


    Just a little bit of Aldi gear going for a ride ;)

    Hi DSNS,

    Just me being anal, so feel free to tell me to shove it where the sun don't shine but you should always store your boots done up. It keeps the plastics in the correct shape and alignment.

    I'm jealous. Have a ball. I'm sure you will.

    Oddly enough I tried that and found the complete opposite. Go figure.
