Get After Your Bucket List!

Joe guides backcountry and ski mountaineering around Southcentral Alaska from November through June. Backcountry skiing can be defined as non-glaciated and non-technical ski terrain. Backcountry skiing is about seeking great snow in a beautiful location. Ski mountaineering adds the exposure component to backcountry skiing—we bring a rope for possible use in steep terrain or for glacier travel.
