Back to the Basics

The air is cool and the weather is rainy, but it is good to be back in Cordova. Friends are slowly but surely making their way back to town the house is filling up. Stories of winter adventures accompany salmon dinners as everyone starts to prepare for this year’s season.

It’s been just over a month since I arrived, and though spring hasn’t quite sprung, the snow is almost all melted (well…from town) and the rainy and sunny days now greatly outnumber the snowy ones. It’s great to be back. Here’s what I’ve been up to:

Ski Hill

The cold weather has made for some beautiful, snowy scenery and some fun adventures of the winter variety, like skiing! Home to North America’s oldest ski lift, Cordova Ski Hill almost never has a line and almost always has soft powder.

Adult Easter Egg Hunt: Alaska-style

Step 1: Make cocktails and place in mini mason jars left over from last year’s jam

Step 2: Hide said cocktails throughout the woods

Step 3: Find and enjoy!

Exploring

Melted snow means it’s exploration time! The past week has been sunny and in the 40s and 50s, meaning with each passing day, the forest becomes just a little more accessible than it was the day before. Bike rides and hiking abound.
