trip to Girdwood

We took a road trip down to Girdwood / Alyeska resort last weekend. They had record snow in December so there was still plenty left to board on. The bottom was a bit slushy but the top was nice. It was Spring Carnival weekend so there were events going on all weekend. We caught the dummy races on saturday where people made dummy's on ski's or sleds to go downhill. Most of them bit it at the jump but a few actually made it all the way down. Sunday there was the slush cup where folks dress up in costume and race down into some icky slushy water and see who get's the furthest. We missed these shenanigans though as we left early Sunday morning. The drive back to Fairbanks was AMAZING. It was a beautiful clear day and the views of Denali were breathtaking. We stopped off in Talkeetna for some lunch at a cool little pizza place. It was a great weekend! As usual, most of the pics are posted at our flickr site.
