The Twentymile River valley has lots of great terrain for crust skiing, and a couple of cool lakes to explore. But it can be finicky. Often times, when enough melting has occurred to create crust, the alders have started popping up, or the section near the road has turned to swamp. You need a lot of snow to get a good crust window. So this year Twentymile, like most other crust destinations in Southcentral, was the best I’ve ever seen it.
Bill and I only had a few hours before work, so we made a quick out and back run straight to the glacier.
