I know very little about skiing and snowboarding, but have done a little. I wanted to know what the backcountry skiing scene was like in Ketchikan so I talked to my buddies Shawn, Chad and Ian about it. The three of them talk about how to get back to the mountain, gauge snow safety, then shredding fresh, backcountry snow with not a lift in sight.
