This was one of trips highlights. The Tincan formation is very long ridge system ending at its summit. The ridge system offers countless skiing opportunities, one could spend a full season touring on Tincan itself. Todd's Run as called by the locals was named after Todd who was killed on the line as the entire bowl ripped out. When conditions are right this is many's favorite line on Tincan. I can see why, after 2500 vertical feet and 1 mile of perfect turns I was calling it the best run of my life. Hmmm thinking back...there is a pattern in AK...every run seems to get the "now that was the best run of my life" designation.
