From the summit, cut through the trees to return to the second headwall. At the bottom of the first snowfield/meadow, pick your way through the trees staying left (most people take the gully and cut left) to another prominent meadow. One more group of aspens, and the third meadow becomes apparent. Just beyond the trees at the bottom of the third meadow is the road where you started.
Numerous variations exist into some rather tight trees, but this route is well-traveled enough that you can get pow turns in the meadows and follow tracks through the trees to the next mostly-unskied meadow.
If you are skiing early season, keep in mind there is a lot of deadfall and broken leg potential lurking under shallow snow, especially in the aspen trees.[more]
Alaska is known for its great snow, huge lines, and amazing terrain, but it is also generally quiet, not very crowded, and has a ton to offer. Some of the best helicopter accessed backcountry is in Alaska, as well as touring options
How to Get There
Get on a plane and head towards the ocean, then turn around and go up into the hills! There is some great skiing just outside of major cities
