For the third year in a row, Level 1 returned to the big mountain arena of Alaska. The crew of Wiley Miller, Tanner Raineville and Duncan Adams with special guest appearances of Josh Bibby and Level 1's "SuperUnknown Vll" winner set out on a three-week stint in Valdez with enough heli budget to feed a small third world country. Conditions started out real nice. Taking our time and easing in, we have been cherry picking the good light, punching out around 5pm for the late afternoon session. We have been getting fresh snow, and more clear days are expected. Keep checking back to Powder.com for updates.—Jeff Cricco
