Aviation in the News

As itineraries are being finalized and gear is being sorted, we were informed earlier today, by an Apres staffer that there was enough left over in the 2011 budget to upgrade our flights arrangements for our upcoming trip to the great Alaskan wilderness. As previously reported, the team would rendez vous at the Flying Crown Airstrip to board the plane pictured below.

Well, plans change. We received a call early this morning from an Apres intern explaining to us that our travel itinerary had been updated. The team will still report the the Flying Crown Airstrip, as previously reported, however our carrier has changed. See below.

Best of Both Worlds

Although ski season may just (finally) be heating up, I couldn’t lay off this summer season concept. Hot tub + boating = amazing. I can’t wait to see these things cruising around harbors all over the country this summer!! On top of the phenomenal utility, take a look, the boats look classic and natural, making it the natural choice for the Apres company boat. (Ok – maybe tender, but we love it!) http://hottubboats.com/.

Excerpts from The Sawtooths. Sun Valley, ID.

…Day three led us north over Galena to Stanley and the Sawtooths, where a long drive through snowy plains awarded us with priceless views (shown below) and a long soak in local hot springs. The journey provided some rest for the evening’s activities, including plans to strap on the skins or snowshoes to ascend the mountain we had so enjoyed skiing down a few days earlier. We assembled at 5 pm at the base lodge and hiked for over 2 hours as the sun set behind us. Meager headlamps announced our slow upward migration to busy Cats preparing the hill for the next day’s crowd, as we pushed on under a starlit sky. At the top, out of breath and ecstatic for the summit, I announced proudly to my friends: “Yes. I skinned baldy.” The steady turns I took on my descent in the dark were some of the most rewarding of my life… Full Story @ Apres Weighs In.

What a tease. Mother Nature’s ballyhoo continues in the West!

After overhearing that Denver was getting throttled with snow this morning I couldn’t help my gut reaction, which was to hate text a buddy of mine who is making some celebratory turns at Vail this weekend.  Luckily I refrained, but then after taking a deeper look, the story got way worse. Travelers all across the country are being affected by the snow, including most likely those trying to get to Vail, but yet again Mother Nature is up to her old ballyhoo. It seems that this monster is nothing more than tomfoolery, blowing a friendly kiss by way of a faint breeze to the resorts in CO. while hammering their gateway city of Denver. Too bad there’s no skiing in Nebraska.
