Here in Alaska, instead of driving to the ski slopes, we fly right up to the parking lot, or rather the glacier, and land at the base of the mountains with ski-equipped bush planes. It tends to save a lot of time.
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to document one such ski-flying outing last weekend on the Eagle Glacier in the Chugach Mountains. As a photographer, it was an awesome opportunity to shoot a great Alaska Adventure subject. As a pilot, it was a great learning experience and only wet my appetite for the day I have my own ski plane up here!
