I like a lot of variety in my ski routes, and so I don’t often do the same trips multiple times. But this was my third time doing the Curry Ridge Rider’s Tokositna Loop. It is such a great ski, its worth doing a few times.
Rob, Bill, Kate, Chris and I are all trying to get ready for the White Mountains 100, and the Tokositna loop is great training for that. For a little variation, we skied it counter-clockwise this year, and I have to say, I think I like that way better. We hit a pretty good snowstorm that dumped at least 4 inches of snow on us during the day. So it was slow going and I didn’t take any photos, but it was fun and really good training.
