But skiing in Valdez is not only about the steep lines, it is also about the incredible beauty and vast ski terrain easily accessible from the road at Thompson Pass. The terrain is not all steep and gnarly, there is plenty of terrain to fit the desire of fit skiers advanced intermediate to expert skiers. ...
