Combining the twin disciplines of ice riding and backcountry skiing, today's ride was the approach to a climb up into the Birthday Bowl.


Ride out to the Jack River, where the ice is glare and fast, 5 miles downstream on the Nenana, park the bike and start climbing.


The tiny speck in the center of the frame is my KDX.


Still not above alders.












It is spring. Grizzlies are emerging from their dens!


The ski round trip completed!


An epic spring afternoon in the Alaska Range! Ride back up the rio and home!

Peace,
Piston
