Every year team rider Josh Randich invites us up but every spring we get wadded up and can’t break free. This year we decided to pull the trigger early, at a time when arguably the Wasatch and Tetons are at a historical height, not to mention whats happening in Japan, to get a different perspective on AK. Josh has been teasing us with glistening maritime south facing features for years and its time we get up close and amplify the high times found in the Chugach mid season.
Our shred crew consisted of Josh and Wiley Miller. Austin Ramaley, Carson Meyer and myself were there to capture the action. We arrived February 1st and we spent 4 of the next 6 consecutive days climbing south facing spine walls right off the road. Only in AK and for only 1 week, we were living the dream!
