For Thanksgiving this year, we decided to head up to Hatcher's Pass (where we were last year with Brian and Vanessa) with Kevin and the puppies to do a little tour skiing. Kevin was awesome enough to let me borrow his AT skis and Ben was trying out his new split snowboard (which he did himself, he did REALLY good). It was raining and crappy everywhere else, and Alyeska was closed due to avalanche danger, but Hatcher's was high enough for it to snow. We hiked up to the Independence Mine then up farther to the caretaker's houses. Then blindly skied all the way back down to the car (the light was so flat I fell in 3 holes having no idea they were there). Then we had our well earned Turkey Feast at the Lodge near the Parking Lot. It was a gooooooooooooood Turkey Day.
