Our professional ski mountaineering guides will take you to some of the best ski terrain on earth with glaciers, peaks, steeps, couloirs and Alaska's famously deep snowpack.
The Valdez, AK area harbors a laid back and unpretentious attitude focused on ski mountaineering and there is more than a lifetime's worth of terrain to explore. We'll stay in a quaint, local B & B in downtown Valdez, and relish in all the comforts of home while enjoying fresh meals of halibut, salmon, and the like. We'll spend our days ski touring in the glacial alpine terrain off Thompson Pass, experiencing Alaskan mountain summits, ski descents of 4,000+ feet and a truly unique, wild, and unforgettable backcountry ski experience.
Participants need to be prepared for an average of 4,000′ feet of climbing and skiing daily and have a minimum of intermediate ski skills. A day of assessment ski touring in the Crested Butte Area is highly recommended to ensure a fun, safe, and quality experience for everyone.
