Get after your bucket list!

Join Alaska's most qualified backcountry ski guide for the trip of a lifetime. Joe guides backcountry and ski mountaineering around Southcentral Alaska from November through June. Backcountry skiing means the terrain is non-glaciated and non-technical. It's about seeking great snow and beautiful location. Ski mountaineering adds the exposure component to skiing—we bring a rope for use in steep terrain or for glacier travel.
