    Knik Glacier

    Anyone been out to the glacier lately? We are planning to go from Hunter Creek tomorrow and were wondering what conditions are like. Thanks, Steve

    Let us know how it goes. I've been thinking of doing that ride in the next week or two.

    The ride went well. Hunter Creek has spread out into extensive overflow that was ridable (mostly) without studs. It will be harder when it warms up, luckily for us the temperature stayed pretty cold. There isn't much snow this year so flotation was not a big issue and the lake ice had a nice attached frost layer so riding on it was very good.Knik Glacier-2511.jpgKnik Glacier-2561.jpgKnik Glacier-2951.jpgKnik Glacier-3021.jpg

    Obviously too late with the conditions report, but I was out there on Saturday. Absolutely spectacular!

    This weather has extended the likelyhood of a ride-- anyone doing a ride up there?
