Skiing in Valdez

I can't remember ever seeing so much snow up in Thompson Pass and down in Valdez. Its definitely a better winter for skiing than climbing!

We parked off the road by the Worthington glacier and started up toward the mountains in the sun.

A little bit of clouds rolled in and out, but it was mostly a brilliant sunny day.

We toured to the top of a glacier then booted a short ways to the top of the peak.

We debated skiing the sunny south side, but in the end the light fluffy looking powder on the north face enticed us more. It was a fantastic run.
