Top of Mount Troy

Florian Wade and Aubrey Hekkers on  Mount Troy - Photo (c) Laurent Dick - Wild Alaska TravelFlorian and his friend Aubrey Hekkers celebrate their climb to the top of Mount Troy on Douglas Island on a gorgeous spring day yesterday. I was very impressed how well those two boys did, especially on the long ascent. The downhill ski was much faster and more fun. In the background is the mainland with downtown Juneau.

Douglas Island Panorama

Douglas Island Panorama from Mount TroyThe weather has been absolutely glorious lately, and the spring skiing has been equally great. I skied to the top of Mount Troy yesterday. This is one of the high peaks on Douglas Island, located almost directly opposite from downtown Juneau. It’s neat to get a different perspective for once, looking  down at downtown Juneau (on the far left). The high peak visible in the center is Mount Jumbo, and the body of water on the far right is Stephens Passage.

First Light On Mount Troy

That’s how I like to start my day… looking out our living room window and watch the first light illuminate the mountains on Douglas Island.

Magical Winter Day In Southeast Alaska

Yesterday was simply a gorgeous winter day throughout Southeast Alaska. Greta, Florian and I went back to Eaglecrest for the third day in a row, and it turned out to be the best day skiing we had all winter. An additional six inches of fresh powder snow brought this past weekend’s storm total to 18 inches, and combined with sunny skies, no wind and no crowds, the skiing was heavenly. We skied until our legs burned! This shot is looking northeast from Pittman’s Ridge high up on Douglas Island, across to Mount Troy and Mount Jumbo, and the Coast Mountains on the mainland in the distance.
