Alaska Ski Traverse for Black Diamond

Last winter was one of the best ever seen in Southcentral Alaska, with record snow fall and snow stability that was downright stubborn.  And it kept it up well into the spring.  Come April we were getting ready to put the season to bed after months of shooting some amazing ski adventures around AK.  Then a spell of high pressure appeared in the forecast and we still had work to shoot for our client Black Diamond.  Jumping at this rare weather op, we headed north of Anchorage to shoot the Bomber Traverse in the Talkeetna Mountains.  The 20-mile circuit connects three huts in one of our favorite mountain ranges in the state.  Cold temps had kept the snow dry and we enjoyed unbelievable power runs every day.  Photographing on a trip like this makes it tough to call it work.
