My first trip to AK!!!  I was so excited to finally be going to AK and to do some real snowboarding.  This experience was unforgettable and left me wanting more.  Being in this new environment was stimulating, stressful, nerve-racking, but also calming and surreal.  There were a lot of emotions everyday when I was standing on top of a peak about to drop.  I have similar emotions that could be compared with what I feel right before I race and I am lined up in the starting gate.  Powerful stuff!!!

I went to Points North Heli operations and it was such a sweet set up.  Food, lodging and heli time were in an all inclusive set up and you get paired up with a sweet guide that is garenteed to give you a first class experience of a lifetime.  I am already thinking of when I will go again next year.
