I’m headed to Cabo, wooooo!
Like any-self respecting skier, a dream spring break doesn’t involve beaches and condos, but mountains and powder. As the result of long-time dream come true, I’m lucky enough to be heading up to Haines, Alaska, for two weeks. As of writing this post, my last final ended hours ago, and since then I’ve been frantically packing.
I’ve finally crammed everything into a few bags, and I think I’m somewhat ready to go. We will be arriving in Haines on Friday morning, and then flying with Fly Drake to a basecamp where we will of course ski! Right now, there is a beautiful weather window, although it is looking like it might close by the time we roll into town.
I’m lugging a bunch of blogging gear up there (the boxes in the upper right of the above photo), and will be filing posts from the glacier. Oddly enough, this is also a cross-cultural ambassadorial mission. Joining me are 3 mono plankers, Tyler Wilkes, Jonathan Cooper, and Russel Cunningham.
Needless to say, I’m excited. I’ll do my best to keep sending out regular updates. Hopefully we find good conditions!
