I took a few hours in the afternoon Tuesday to make a backcountry ski assault on Mount Gordon Lyon next to Arctic Valley Ski Area in Anchorage, Alaska. I only recorded video footage on the descent with my GoPro. I'm still getting used to backcountry skiing so my descent was edited since it wasn't very fast.
The skies were clear and views from the summit were abundant including Mt Redoubt, Hunter, Foraker and Denali.

Nice! Snow sounds crusty. Cool duck on the way out too. How long was sunset?
