Happy Trails to Hillary

It is with a sad heart we say goodbye to one of our favorite backcountry partners, Hillary Prugh, who is leaving Alaska this Saturday night for Bozeman, Montana to begin her career as a real-live lawyer.

Our first backcountry excursions this season to Hatcher's Pass were with Hillary and Andrea and I took the Avy. 1 class earlier this winter with her. In such a short time, we packed in alot of great memories.

I can honestly say Hillary is one of the best alpine skiers I have ever seen strap on tele gear. And when she finally got her skins cut (last week) on her AT boards, she ripped. Above is a picture of Andrea, Hillary and uh, me, at Hatcher pass in mid-November.

Hillary, we will miss turning with you the rest of this season and we are looking forward to one more sub-zero mission to Turnagain this weekend! Keep your smile big and we will visit in Montana soon!

Thanks so much for the one more run urgings, the jewish man dance (see NYE photo), rat tail expertise, and the constant smiles, laughs, and good conversation. I will miss you tons!!
