7 Days

Apr, May




Ski touring in Alaska is a must if you are in love with this discipline. The terrain is vast and varied, the fantastic untracked powder is there for you to leave your mark! Spend 7 amazing days ski touring in Thompson Pass and experience the slopes of Alaska!

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).

Don’t miss this opportunity! Let’s explore the best slopes in Thompson Pass together. Book this trip and we will start planning the details! And if you want to further explore the region, check out this option: a 10-day backcountry skiing and road trip in Alaska.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

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.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.
