Valdez Ski Report – November 29, 2015/1700

Excellent skiing on Thompson Pass with deep powder and good stability.  Toured up Moonlight with a local group under partly cloudy skies to sunny skies and temps in the upper 20’s. Here’s a short report from Moonlight Basin West.

I can tell you it is sick when you wake to sun and you currently have the deepest snowpack in the world in Thompson Pass. Thankfully a road runs through it. It was all deep, stable powder skiing today and as good as it gets.

So we took a little free-heeler guy with us.

What the heck? Moose in the high Chugach.

Just a bit further and he makes it.
