CVA Backcountry Skiing  Carrabassett Valley Academy Backcountry Skiing - AK expedition writeup:

Congratulations to our graduating seniors Cam Niven and David Rowse. Cam is off to Montana State and David is off to Colorado College. Thank you for all you brought to our team. We will miss you lots but we are so excited for your journeys to continue and we can't wait to hear about all of your accomplishments. The mountain community is brighter with you two in it! #gobigdogs #theendlesssearchforpowder #college #mountaingraduation @cave_man_cam @david_rowse

We are currently getting our mountain bikes out of storage, building new jumps for them, and getting some vitamin d into our bodies. It feels incredible to have these warm days, but on the hot ones it's still nice to remember the feeling of getting blasted in the face by blowing snow! Manitoba Peak, AK

Sophomore Jake Williams is not only talented on skis, but with a camera in his hand. Here is a short edit of shots from the past year.

Mashing potatoes in the Gulf of Slides yesterday was super fun. The approach and descent out of the Gulf was New England adventure skiing at it's finest complete with river crossings, wet leaf skims, and the ever-shrinking white ribbon. We are happy to still be getting out skiing at the beginning of May as the school year winds down.

Scoping out some lines and earning some GNAR points. We are still stoked on the sunny days @resortalyeska .

Good morning from our Center Ridge camp. We started our day with coffee, breakfast, and a view. From this spot, we had access to powder skiing in Lyon Creek and from the glacier on Kickstep Mountain. An adventure for the books! @remarkable.adv

@tallie_pils making some 'hippy turns' before descending the Eddie's Peak ridge in Turnagain Pass. The sky opened up just as we made it to our high point for the day and the size of the range is truly impressive. We are skiing on the tip of the iceberg.

Last night, on our first night in AK, it snowed almost 3 feet in Turnagain Pass! It was a great day to keep it mellow, run through avalanche rescue scenarios, and see some impressive recent avalanche activity while the mountains settle down a bit. What an amazing place, we can't wait to keep exploring!
