elysesaugstad This is me happily satisfied after an evening session of shooting w/ @aengerbretson & @skicamguy out of Girdwood w/ @chugachpowderguides a few weeks back. After waiting two weeks on weather, and ultimately extending our trip for one last chance, we succeeded in nabbing one evening session. Typical AK of waiting for things to align. It was worth it & heaps of fun. #patiencepaysoff Thanks for the @aengerbretson. .... @orage89 #originaljourney #thewaitinggame #girdwood #skiak #skilikeagirl #skiing #heliskiing #minimoonrising 4d

elysesaugstad Do you dream of huge mountains with wide open, steep faces to paint your tracks upon? I do all the time, so I feel pretty damn lucky that on occasion I get to experience my dreams. Thanks Alaska for being the best canvas ever! And a huge thanks to @blizzardskis / @tecnicaskiboots for inviting me on this epic trip to @ak_rendezvous with such a fun, rad crew. : @blizzimages Along with ski buddies: @c0nnery & @robbgaffney #thatsawrap #skiing #skiasfastasyoucanandmakeaslittleofturnsaspossible #skiAK #alaskanbred 1w

elysesaugstad Uber is pretty cool but helicopters are still WAY better, especially when you have a kick ass pilot who likes to make the taxi rides as fun as the skiing. #snowchella2016 #helicoptersarecool .... @blizzardskis @ak_rendezvous 2w

elysesaugstad Words cannot describe how bummed I am of the loss of @maximarsenault. He was a HUGE inspiration to me to send it and stomp like a boss. He was always SO stoked on skiing and life. God damnit. RIP, buddy, RIP. #myhearthurts #bluepantscrew 2w

elysesaugstad This is my kind of heaven. Steeeep terrain, buttery fresh pow, wide open faces to haul ass down... I'm loving Valdez heli-skiing w/ @blizzardskis / @tecnicaskiboots & @ak_rendezvous!

elysesaugstad It's finally GAME ON up here in south central Alaska, it makes all the waiting worth it. I made it in to @ak_rendezvous Valdez last night after skiing out of Girdwood the past 2 weeks to meet up with the @blizzardskis crew, and boy what a great day it was! It's extra exciting for me as I've never skied in these parts before. #awesomeisanunderstatement #skiAK #heliskiing #skiing #valdez #heliskiingalaska .... Thanks for the photo @blizzimages @tecnicaskiboots 2w

elysesaugstad Put me in a pair of Xtra Tufs and I think I'm a gosh darn sailor. Well I am a sister of a sailor. And I am trying really hard to see past the thick clouds that really need to go away already. #downdays #sillyposing #dontfallin #orage89 @orage89 @blizzardskis @resortalyeska #skiAK : @aengerbretson 3w

elysesaugstad I was given the honorable job of judging the infamous @resortalyeska #slushcup today! I was getting almost as drenched as the contestants. I must mention I was pretty impressed by the huge crowd turnout in the pouring rain - but that's Alaska for you! #Alaskansarehardasf*ck #springcarnivalweekend #theshowmustgoon #wetnwild #atleastitssnowingontop 4w

elysesaugstad When you stay out in the backcountry squeezing out the last bits of light, the bonus is awesome sunset views from up high. #beautifulsunsetsnevergetold #apresski #beersatthetruck #longdayswork #sledskiing 4w
