Description

The frosted peaks of Chugach Mountains, in Valdez, Alaska, are full of possibilities for snowboarders. That is why I suggest you this one-week tour to explore the backcountry!

The plan is simple, but exciting: to travel each day to the Thompson pass to snowboard until the sun goes down. For those who love variety, each day will be thrilling, since the terrain will never be the same. You will be able to do long runs, (some of them, of 1,200 m from the highest summits), long backcountry linkups, explore other areas, and even ask for a heli snowboard trip.

In the evening, we will head back to our accommodation, a comfortable Bed and Breakfast where we will be able to chill and rest.

Even if we will travel a lot on glaciers, the terrain is not too technical. However, it is essential to be fit, have prior backcountry snowboarding experience and to be familiar with avalanche rescue procedures to sign up (although we will review these at the beginning of the program).

Are you excited already? Send me your request to enjoy the best week of snowboarding on the remote slopes of the Chugach Mountains.

And, if one week is not enough, take another one to enjoy off-piste snowboarding in the magnificent outskirts of Haines, Alaska.

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.

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!
