Highlights

 
     

    In southern Alaska, we find a special town at the Chugach Mountains. It is Valdez, a gem for ski lovers. Each spring the town receives skiers from all around the world, eager to leave their mark on the first-class powder. Join me for a week ski mountaineering in this fantastic location. 

    We will stay in Valdez and travel to Thompson pass each day to enjoy full ski days. The terrain and itinerary options are varied, so every day will be different. There are 1200 meters long runs from the imposing summits. It is also possible to do long backcountry linkups. Heli touring is another option, and we can even camp to explore further for several days.

    We will travel mainly on glaciers, but the terrain is not too technical so you don’t need prior glacier experience. However, you do need to be in good physical shape and have backcountry ski experience. Although we will review avalanche rescue procedures at the beginning of the program, you need to have proper training.

    Spring is the best period for this adventure, but it is also possible to go there during the winter.

    Looking forward to this adventure in Alaska? Send me a request and let’s explore the best slopes near Valdez! I will be waiting for your message. There is also a great option to practice ski mountaineering in the Coast Mountains of Alaska, check it out!
