valdez is extremely far from where you are, road-wise, but it's some sick riding...all backcountry. then there's alyeska in girdwood. biggest resort in ak. more known for it's steeps than for carving, but it's still fun to hb there. if you;re planning a trip in the spring-best snow conditions, to alyeska let me know, hopefully i'll be recovered and back on my board. i can give you a little tour. if not, there are a few hills in fairbanks that can keep you turning until you can reach a real mountain. anyway, why did you choose uaf when uaa is so much closer to where the riding is?
