    Default PWS/Whittier Telemark skiing

    Does Anyone know about what the backcountry ski conditions would be like the first week in May out in the Prince William Sound near Whittier?
    I have a boat but never been to Whittier. The only time I can go on this trip with my son is early May. I thought I would bring skies, kayaks, shrimp pots and fishing gear But I would leave the skies if that its too late in the season for good snow near shore. Anyone familar with that area in early May?

    In a typical year I'd expect the first week of May to be good, but if the sound is melting out anything like Anchorage I think you might be disappointed. Culross Island approached from Culross Passage is a good spot.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
