Thompson Pass Weekend
Our friend Lee put together a fun weekend trip and decided March would be a great time to check it out for the first time. We drove about 4 hours to get to the pass towing an empty snowmobile trailer which would be our tent for the weekend. The road trip is always half the fun as we drove past the Matanuska glacier on the way and had great weather the whole time.
The skiing here is pretty amazing, there were quite a few people skiing and snowmobiling and one parking lot was filled with campers. We were able to find a parking lot where we were the only ones. When we woke up in the morning we had some neighbors that were from all over the world, one guy from Europe, another from Scotland I think, they had tented it and had not slept a whole lot from what they said. We skied Friday afternoon when we got there about 2800 feet. Saturday we skied about 4500 feet and were rewarded with powder turns. None of us wanted to go home as we loaded up, we stopped for some greasy burgers with the girls in one car and the guys in the truck.
