    Alyeska downhill trails

    I pedaled and pushed my way up the access road on Alyeska yesterday. It was a ways to the top of 6 from that point. He led me down some steep switchbacks with banked turns cut into the shale. We crossed the road were riding on trails cut into the tundra across a long bench heading riders left. There were banked turns, a few nice jumps, and some fast rolling riding through some beautiful terrain. These trails continued down under Chair 6, clear to the top of chair 3, and down to the bottom. By the end, I would have paid $100 to get to the top again. Unreal. If you haven't booked your weekend plans for the 19th yet, do it. Even if you aren't a downhill enthusiast, please go and show your support for expanding riding possibilities in Alaska. I ride a 5 inch travel bike, and was comfortable on all the trails there.

    They're awesome huh. I pushed up a couple weeks ago I didn't get a ride but that's no problem. Glad to see others getting after it.
