3 2 1 Go today we’re heading back up to Hatcher Pass which is somewhere we visited back in the fall and we’re heading up there with the same company and we’re going to do something similar but different so but same same but different different because it is the middle of winter right now it is

February instead of doing some off-roading with rocks and grass we are going to be doing off-roading in the snow we have 2 days up there that we’re going to be spending so we’re going to be staying overnight in their lodging on property and we’re going playing outside

For the next 24 hours and I’m really excited it should be a lot of fun dumping snow pretty much the entire drive here in about 5 or 10 minutes ago it stopped there’s a nice fresh coat of snow on the ground for some great snow Machining yeah I’m very excited for That we just arrived and we’re getting ready to take these utvs out last time we took them they had wheels on them this time they have tracks on them which are a lot better for snow obviously sorry if I sound like I’m sling my words I actually recently got Invisalign so

You’re going to have to deal with that now we’re going to get out there and start Going we’re about to hop in our heated UTV pretty excited we’re going to get out of the top he said that should be nice we haven’t done anything in Alaska in a couple months like exciting so in the room I cannot wait to show you guys I love it I love that it’s

Amazing get sun we haven’t seen the sun in Days last time we had so much fun doing this and I think it’s going to be a very different experience in the snow the terrain is so different and I think that’s one of my favorite things about Alaska is that the summer or fall versus the winter it’s a completely different

Place even though we’ve done it before this is completely different we’re going to be doing it tomorrow as well when it’s supposed to be really really sunny Out snow gives a lot more control than the Mud I think it’s about to get really fun hello pretty crazy on the ice Road huh just a little snow truck Trail we’re going to have some fun bounce around maybe sling a little powder okay Go since it the snow did kind of melt about a couple weeks ago we had a lot of warm temps and now we have a bunch of ice right here that’s ice that darker portion here it’s just all ice underneath the snow right now because we

Haven’t gotten a ton of snow yet the traction isn’t as strong as it could be and we’re going to make a hard left turn he said if you get stuck don’t go up the bank and flip the machine look at that snow machine yeah he’s sliding oh Slippy The trees are actually 20 ft tall the snow is very deep out there some areas the snow is 20 ft deep and it’s not like soft snow so you’re not going to sink in but I mean it’s hard packed and we’re just standing on probably 15 20 ft of

Just snow let me show you what we’re driving here today good old Polaris Ranger here here this thing is pretty sick got a big old grill guard got these off-roading snow tracks to get us through the snow and it’s got a heated cabin we’re up here on Hatcher Pass kind

Of towards the top we checked our temperature in the machine 49° it’s 17° down in the valley that’s because of the temperature inversion that happens on Hatcher Pass it happens year round during the winter it’s warmer during the summer it’s cooler so that’s why we get the first snow and also the

Longest snow just us to enjoy it so we really need more people to come here come for the weather if not the Views it’s so much calmer than the fall one like you’re just kind of like gliding and bumping it’s a lot smoother like you’re kind of just gliding in the snow instead of like going over these giant Rocks that was a big one currently in the same spot that we were in the fall when we came and did this it looks the same but it’s just such a different landscape right now all the snow this little vegetation right here is probably like 10 ft tall and I’m just standing right
