A multifaceted Alaska Ski Experience
This trip is designed for those looking to experience skiing/riding in Alaska and learn more about traveling in bigger mountain ranges.
Our itinerary is divided into two sections. First, we will ski tour the iconic Thompson Pass with an assist from a helicopter for 1-2 days. The helicopter will bump us out into the range early in the morning to gain most of our elevation for the day. Then we will ski through the terrain to Thompson Pass.
Secondly, we aim to teach you the fundamentals of glacier skiing from a floatplane on a remote glacier for several days. Here we ski to and from camp in our own basin. You will learn glacier camping, glacier travel, and proper life-styling.
Join us this April 7th – 15th, 2024 for our Alaska ski trip!
