Do you even know how to be a bruh, bruh? Sometimes your skins glop, the snow is shotty and angry, you develop random blisters, and get eaten alive by trees and alders. When that day happeneds, it's a good time to laugh a lot, go to plan b and then to plan c, and send baby powder jumps like a boss. #beacontumor #alaska #ski #skiing #adventure #earnyourturns #outdoorwomen #getoutside #backcountry #earnyourbeer #forceofnature #winterfun
That sunshine though! @wanderlustalaska skinning up in the bottom right corner on a beautiful day in summit lake. #skitouring #ski #skiing #splitboarding #wondermore #outdoorwomen #sisterhoodofshred #earnyourturns #alaska #sharingalaska #nature #exploremore
The sun may be hitting the south slopes but, man oh man, does the north face provide! @resortalyeska #alaska #liftservice #thealaskalife #ski #skiing #outdoorwomen #sisterhoodofshred #nature #sharingalaska #powder
#tbt to some Valdez Ice Fest fun (with the climber on the left). While I won't be making the journey for this year's event tomorrow, I know there will be ice and good times ahead. #alaska #liveclimbrepeat #ice #adventure #nature #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing #thealaskalife #goatworthy #getoutside
Our goggle training has advanced to level awesome. Bring on spring skiing and a bright, sunny sky! #husky #dogsofinstagram #alaska #skiingwithdogs #adventure #shades #mansbestfriend #rexspecs #hikingwithdogs
Everyone loves a weekend party with a little champagne and a little more white powder... My coworkers, 2260 road miles away, got together for bottomless mimosas to send off a coworker to her next chapter in her life. Since I couldn’t be there, I figured this was the next best way to support them.

There are four people in this photo, can you spot them all? Fun day finding really good snow in the trees. Just a liiiiittle variable on the ridge thanks to some recent winds. #ski #skitouring #skiing #alaska #sharingalaska #outdoorwomen #getoutside
Almost 30 days after finding the tumor and then having immediate surgery, this little lady is almost ready to get back to the mountains and sunshine. I am pleased to share the vet does not believe the cancer has spread and that there is a minimal chance of recurrence. This is my entry for @hikingdogsofinsta #2019hikingpupscalendar contest! #alaska #hikingdogsofinstagram #doggycancersucks #dogsofinstagram #hikingwithdogs #hiking #husky #hike #mansbestfriend #ilovealaska

Who needs skiing big beautiful faces when you can alder bash all day?  After begining to tour 3 miles into a valley filled with avy debris and low visibility, we decided the possible terrain trap we were in was not worth the summit. We bailed and stopped to enjoy the deep, fresh pow at Eddies on the way home. #byehighpressure #alaska #ski #skiing #earnyourturns #skitouring #alderbashing #sisterhoodofshred #outdoorwomen #backcountry #nature
I may have misssed most of the Super Bowl but today was totally worth it. #alaska #ski #earnyourturns #skiing #skiuphill #getoutside #wildernessculture #skitouring #optoutside #naturealaska #ilovealaska #sunshine #happy4yearstressa
There's just something about knowing the dark, short days of winter are behind us. Skiing in the sun and powder can make anyone smile. Cheers to more sunshine! #thealaskalife #longerdays #alaska #getoutside #sunshine #ski #skitouring #earnyourturns #skiing #backcountry #nature #adventure
We weren’t super stoked on the pit results we found on the face we wanted to ski today. Instead, we ran party laps all morning on some lower angle slopes. #ski #skiing #earnyourturns #splitboard #alaska #getoutside #adventure #pow #breakablecrust #sharingalaska #winter
Sometimes you need to stop and enjoy the white roses. What a beautiful, cold day @resortalyeska . #liftservice #ski #skiing #snowboarding #alaska #thealaskalife #sharingalaska #nature #welcomebackwinter #prayforsnow #getoutstayout
