20 Mile River - Backcountry Ski Touring

This trip is suitable for beginning backcountry skiers as it's flat and we'll be skiing in snowmachine tracks. Unfortunately we'll hear snowmachines all day, but the scenery will be outstanding! We'll ski up the 20 Mile River valley (just past Girdwood) for 3.5 or 4 hours and turn around. No avalanche danger. Bring appropriate gear for the weather, sunscreen, lunch, snacks and water. As usual, no dogs allowed.

    Doris and Dasha, you can both go, no problem. Backcountry skis aren't a "must," you'll just go a little slower with alpine skis. There's fresh powder out there! We drove through a pretty good blizzard yesterday, with very poor visibility, to get to Turnagain Pass. Thankfully the sun came out again!

    The system doesn't allow anymore to sign in at this time. I would like to go if possible.

    Are back country skis a must or can I get away with alpine skis with bindings?

    Sounds fun but I'll be out of town.
