Home

The year is started out with some horrendous avalanche conditions. Then we had a lot of late-season snow that brought a dry year up to normal snow depths in late March. In March and April, we were focused on Denali. The summer turned out moist and cool. Then after a heavy snowfall in October, we had a dry fall/early winter. And I had a fabulous late fall with lots of fun snow climbs.
