Description

Massive amounts of snow piling up all winter long on endless alpine faces, flowing spines, rolling glaciers and immaculate couloirs. Alaska big mountain skiing is a legendary adventure that should be on every committed skiers list. This is your chance.

Join Ross Berg ACMG/IFMGA and Nick D’Alessio AMGA for 7 days of backcountry ski touring and ski mountaineering in the Chugach mountains near Valdez Alaska.

THE SKIING

There are few places in the world with terrain like Alaska and even fewer places with the mystique of the Chugach range. Raising straight from the highway is an endless supply of alpine terrain. From mellow alpine cruisers to steep couloirs, we will be skiing in the Thompson pass with the option of pushing further into the Chugach via heli drop or snowmobile bump

Alpine peaks, Glaciers, Couloirs
Terrain for intermediate to expert
Endless Alpine terrain
Runs of up to 4000ft/1500m

ACCOMMODATION

We will be basing our selves out of the Best Western – Valdez Harbour Inn, on the Valdez harbour. The hotel offers both single and double accommodation rooms. All amenities are available at the hotel: Restaurant, complementary breakfast, wifi, Fitness room.

GETTING TO VALDEZ

It is possible to either fly directly to Valdez or the much cheaper option is to fly to Anchorage. We will have a vehicle in Anchorage on April 11th to transport all guests to Valdez. Anchorage to Valdez is a picturesque 5 hour drive.
Options;
Flight to Anchorage + drive to Valdez
Flight directly to Valdez (quicker but more expensive)
