"Chugach Cement"

Aaron claims: "The distinction between Cascade Concrete and Chugach Cement is a subtle, but important one." I am not convinced. All I know is I saw what looked to be soft, fluffy untracked snow at Alyeska; what I hit trapped the inside of edge of my skis, quickly became bumpy, and when I crashed (numerous times, of course), acted like a vice grip on my awkwardly-turned skis.

I must admit, though, that the one run down the High Traverse (the ski patrollers only opened it up for one run -- evidently to let it get tracked up so that it would look less appealing to untracked-powder-seekers), I gently bounced, each turn sinking to my waist, and yelling YAHOOO!!!! with a smile on my face the whole way down.
