Here's a teaser from Alaska!

Time's tight up here. I'm just past the middle of my AMGA Ski Mountaineering Guides Course. These things are all consuming, in a good way. Its supposed to be full immersion, and we get that and then some. I'll write it all more thoroughly, but for now you'll have to be content knowing we've skied powder, corn, ice, breakable crust, bottomless mashed potatoes, and huge glaciated runs. We've gotten to the top of these runs via feet, skis, crampons, and a helicopter ride. I've learned a ton, and will learn more.

These next three days are the "Aspirant exam" portion, during which we will be assessed for our competence. Aw jeez!

Check back for more later!
