Alaska, The Tour, Day 4, The Heiden Glacier

On day 4 the morning weather was a little more clear, which seemed to bode well for a sight seeing day on the Heiden Glacier.
We skied down to the toe of the Heiden on funky wet snow and skinned up the glacier. The clouds briefly descended, but lifted again quickly.
The scenery was unbelievably great.

We skinned up to the head of the glacier and turned around for a fast cruise out.
Then headed up off the glacier.
And found some decent skiing on gentle slopes back to camp - although the clouds returned for some very flat light.

The mountain scenery was certainly some the finest I have ever witnessed!
