Not specified

7 Days

Mar, Apr, May




I invite you to live a legendary adventure: skiing in Alaska’s big mountains. Join me for 7 unforgettable days of backcountry ski touring and ski mountaineering in the Chugach mountains, near Valdez. If you are an experienced skier, you should do it at least once in your life.

There are few places in the world with the mystique of the Chugach range. Also, few places with the terrain we can find in Alaska. Picture huge amounts of snow piling up all winter long on endless mountain faces, rolling glaciers, flowing spines and immaculate couloirs. It’s something you won’t see anywhere else. This is your chance!

Get ready to enjoy runs of up to 1500 metres on endless alpine terrain, through glaciers, couloirs and alpine peaks. And let me tell you an interesting fact about the Chugach mountains: more snow falls here than anywhere else in the world!

The difficulty level of this trip is from intermediate to expert. We have more options for advanced skiers. I will guide you on a ski tour through the Thompson pass. Then, we will have the option of getting further into the Chugach mountains via snowmobile bump or heli drop.

Getting to the small city of Valdez is possible with a direct flight, but flying to Anchorage is much cheaper. If you chose the last option, we will have a vehicle to transport you from Anchorage to Valdez. It’s a 5 hour drive through a picturesque road.

I guarantee we will have an amazing time in Alaska. I have the experience and certification needed to ensure you will enjoy a safe and great ski tour. Besides, I love big mountain skiing!

So don’t miss this oportunity! Contact me if you want to live an unforgettable 7-day adventure in the Chugach mountains in Alaska. I will be more than happy to guide you there.

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.
