“Welcome to Alaska,” Dean Cummings said.

I was halfway down a chute in an iconic Thompson Pass, AK zone known as “The Pages.” He was tucked in behind a rock, hardly visible as I slid by, cautiously navigating in an out of a ribbon of slough and waist-deep snow on the toeside wall. An hour prior, we’d been sitting on the couch at the Valdez Best Western...
