Whistling wind and an increasingly bright light lulled me from slumber. Gazing up at a synthetic grey ceiling, I wondered what time it was: 4:30 a.m., the average sunrise. Carefully shifting on my 22 inches of inflatable real estate, I looked toward my feet. “Buenos dias,” I crackled. With a grin on his face and glint in his eyes, my tent mate sang out, “Buenos dias mi nina” (Good morning daughter).

Thankfully, plant tags can help consumers make informed decisions.

Hatcher Pass hides her best ski lines from view. Some are easy to access, like Rae Wallace and Lost Couloir, while others are miles away. Delia Peak and her environs are in between, distance wise--a mile and a half skin up Gold Mint valley, then another mile or so back toward the peak. With such a reasonable approach, there’s plenty of time to skin back and ski several lines in a day.
