Kings & Corn has been one of my dream trips for years, so when I got the call for a shoot up there I jumped at the chance. Chugach Powder Guides’ signature trip combines heli accessed corn skiing and king salmon fishing into 5 days of non-stop adventure that may be the ultimate Alaska experience.
We arrived in Anchorage, packed our gear into a float plane and flew west to Winterlake Lodge, a beautiful lodge on a pristine lake surrounded by green hills with the glaciated peaks of the Tordrillo Mountains in the distance. June days are long in Alaska, but we made full use of the daylight and got in as much skiing and fishing as the conditions would allow. The highlight of the trip was a mountain top dinner followed by corn skiing under the midnight sun with amazing views of the the Kichatna Spires, Mt Foraker and Denali across the horizon.
Of course I had my f-stop pack (aka. The Angry Midget) loaded with camera gear for the majority of the shots, but I also had my Sony NEX-7 with me for those spur of the moment shots or times when I wanted to ‘run and gun’. It’s a great camera that’s really easy to use and the images stand up really well next to my larger DSLR. The more I use it, the more I get attached to it, and I don’t go anywhere without it now.
Here are a few highlights of the trip shot with the NEX-7. More to come!
