In June 2009 photographer Matt Hage and I skied from the summit of 9,020-foot Mount Chamberlin in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Chamberlin is* the highest summit in Brooks Range according to the most recent maps.

From the landing strip on the Hulahula to the summit, our route was 15 miles and 8,000 vertical feet.
To the Hans Fund crew for knowing that ski mountaineering is a higher form of alpinism.
To the folks at Osprey Packs for making incredible gear. We used Variant 52 for the best combination of heavy load hauling and light summit packs. For travel we used Transporter 95—only 2 pounds 5 ounces. Keep up the great work!
