Spring is the ideal time to come to Thompson Pass, as the snow is perfect and the days are longer. Here, in the Chugach Mountains, you will experience some of the best possible skiing in the world! The first class terrain and snow will surpass your expectations.

We will stay in the town of Valdez, in Prince William Sound. This 7-day program includes 6 days of ski touring. If you do not have enough time available, the program can be easily shortened to 5 days. We have the option of spending all the nights in Valdez, but we can also camp for one or more nights, and in that way reach more remote ski touring spots.

The program is not fixed, as the idea is to adapt it to suit your skills. In this way, you will have the best possible time ski touring in Thompson Pass. It is even possible to do some heliski (not included in the price).

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!
