In between the epic strike missions and blue bird days in Alaska, it's not rare as a skier to find yourself stranded in sunshine for some down days. That's exactly where we find the "Keep Your Tips Up" crew, Sean Pettit, Mark Abma and Richard Permin, as they wait impatiently to fire up the heli and summit some Alaskan peaks in Valdez.

Once they run out of stir crazy activities, the skies deliver and they awake to blue bird conditions and Alaskan snow that is begging to be shredded. They go zero to 100 real quick, and go buck wild in the best snow of the winter. Press play below, and enjoy the show:
