Backcountry ski touring - Peters Creek Trail

Join us for a 4 - 5 hour backcountry ski trip, touring the Peters Creek Valley north of Anchorage. Backcountry touring skis work best back here and the terrain is intermediate level (no beginners). Snow conditions were good here last weekend and should be even better now. I want to get out on this trail again before they open it up to snowmachines. Bring skins, just in case we go someplace where we need them. Bring lunch, water, snacks, appropriate gear for the weather, chocolate, and plenty of smiles!

    This was a fantastic ski trip and from Mile 2 on we had the pleasure of making first tracks through new powder! The top layer of snow was light but the bottom layer was compacted, crusty and heavy. Fun group of people and we enjoyed a "super highway" skiing back out. Matt - we hope to see you on many future ski trips!

    That was really great! Thanks for letting me tag along. We skied 11.5 miles according to my GPS.

    Thanks Matt, but now I'd kind of like to try these out now. They are AT skis with a waxless base.

    Hi John. I have an extra pair of waxless skis with three pin bindings you could use tomorrow.

    Hey John R - since you'll be using heavy, wide skis, we'll make you the designated trail breaker. How's that sound? ;-)

    I am temporarily without 3 pin skis so I will be on AT gear.
