Powdermag.com review of McConkey written by Ingrid Backstrom
We flew into Cordova, Alaska yesterday afternoon, hoping to fly out to tour camp, or “hippie camp” as some of the Points North staff has dubbed it. Instead, we are hunkered down in the rain, watching the otters float by, waiting out the weather. We’ve been meeting new friends, playing foosball and ping pong, and watching movies in the NEFCO Lodge. The waiting game is part of the experience as nature hits the reset button and refills the good lines.
