As if you are at the edge of the world is how you will feel within the Neacola mountains. Located in the Lake Clark national park, the Neacola mountains are as isolated as they are spectacular. Filled with peaks and glaciers, this range rests approximately 150 kilometres away from the city of Anchorage.

Over the course of 12 days, based out of a comfortable campsite near the range’s gorgeous glaciers, where you will be able to rest, relax and get warm at the end and beginning of each day, you will get to enjoy and explore the Neacola mountains. It is important to note that because of the isolation of the range, many of the peaks you will have the chance to descend have never been descended before!

Another great thing about this mountain range is the relatively low altitude of its peaks. For example, the highest peak in the range, Neacola peak is only 2,873 metres. Thus making the skiing on this trip very accessible. However, because the  range is so isolated and untracked, many of the routes we will take can be strenuous. As a result it is important that participants are in good physical conditions and have prior ski touring experience.

When it comes to great ski touring in Alaska, you can’t do much better than the Neacola mountains. Furthermore, if you are the kind of person who is looking to get away from it all. If you want to feel the kind of peace and tranquillity that comes with being in the middle of nowhere, this place will be a dream come true.

So send us a request, and let us guide you for 12 days on an adventure you will never forget.
