Hi there, i'm planning a trip to Alaska and i'm pretty sure some of you has been there already...

I will travel alone for the first part of the trip, then two of my friends will join me to go to Tailgate AK in Thompson Pass.

My plan is staying in Girwood for the first ten days, riding Alyeska if there's fresh snow or hitting the backcountry if the resort is tracked down.

The question is: is Alyeska and surroundings good enough for a ten days stay? Or it's bettere stayng there for a shorter time?

And also, is there some other recommended place i could go after Tailgate?

Thanks folks!

If you think it's probably an 'offence', and are actually sorry, why did you not ask and go ahead and do it anyway?
