Last season, after an exchange semester spent away from the mountains in the Desert Southwest, myself and a few other good friends put our all into climbing and skiing different mountains in the Chugach Range. When the conditions were right, we found ourselves in the mountains as much as possible, working on classes and school work whenever we could to ensure quality time amongst the peaks every week. I used a Go Pro camera to record clips of many of these outings, in an attempt to portray the activity we've come to love so much. We are all snow awaiting the snow with great anticipation, watching the snow line get lower and lower on the peaks! Hope you enjoy this video, it was quite fun to put together and thanks to Mute Math for the great music. Some photos from the season below as well.

Keep an eye out for posts coming up about the experience of spending my summers in the Kenai Fjords National Park as a sea kayak guide, and a video from my most recent trip, a three week canoeing trip on the great Yukon river! Cheers
