Alaska is a wonderful land, with countless unique opportunities for ski touring. If you have several days available, this road trip to reach the best backcountry ski spots in Alaska during 10 days is a must!

Our meeting point will be Anchorage. We will drive and ski for 10 fantastic days, and finish our trip back in Anchorage. The loop will be over 700 kilometers long. During this itinerary we will visit the best backcountry ski corners in Southcentral Alaska.

Staying each night in a bed and breakfast, we will set out for an amazing ski touring day every morning. Please note that although I planned a ski touring itinerary, there are other options possible (but not included in the original price). For example heliski and cat skiing. But there are no lifts in the area that we can use to go off-piste.

We will first drive to Girdwood, from where we can ski at Summit Lake or Turnagain Pass, in the Kenai Mountains. Next, we will pack our stuff and move on to Whittier. From there, we will take a ferry to Valdez. The Chugach Mountains are a fantastic playground! We will ski each day at the Thompson Pass. Then the most scenic part of the road trip comes, as we drive the Glenn Highway. We will enjoy impressive views over the Wrangell, Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains. And during this stretch of the trip we will stop at Hatcher Pass  (Talkeetna Mountains) to ski. Finally, we will return to Anchorage.

This is a model itinerary, but depending on your wishes (and budget!) it can be modified. Besides, it might need to be modified if the weather and snow conditions are not ideal.

Tempted to traverse Southcentral Alaska and leave your mark on the best powder along the way? Contact me to book this trip! It will be an unforgettable experience. If you want to focus on one place, it is also possible to do a 7-day ski mountaineering in Valdez.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
