DOWNHILL ON DENALI

Experience the grace and grandeur of Mount Denali and its surrounding national park on this epic skiing adventure. North America’s highest peak, Denali reaches above a sky-scraping 20,000 feet. From glaciers to powder fields, steep couloirs to deep crevasses, Alaska’s awe-inspiring scenery offers the ultimate backcountry skiing excursion.

Traveling on foot, touring, or by heli—and accompanied by expert guides throughout—you will have the chance to lose yourself in the mountains while skiing some of the best untracked powder of your life.

COLD SMOKE ON THE GLACIER

With fresh powder coating the immense Ruth Glacier, your guide will lead you to slopes of immaculate white. Gain access to mountainous reaches that few have ever set eyes upon, let alone skied. Equipped with climbing harnesses, even the high ice cliffs are not unpassable.

Stand at the edge of a mountain chute or above a powder-coated bowl and revel in the solitude of this isolated hillside. With varying degrees of steepness and difficulty, each day is tailored to your personal desires and abilities amid the highest quality snow conditions.

GLACIER TREKKING & GOURMET PICNICS

As Alaska’s picturesque wilderness seems to offer infinite varieties of natural splendor, so skiing is not the only method of exploration here. Try glacier trekking by snowshoe, crevasse exploration and sledding runs, with gourmet picnics to refuel.

Discover Denali’s rugged base on a hike or head for the summit and an eagle-eye view over the national park. After a day’s exploration, see the setting sun wash the jagged ridgelines with pastel colors as the stars freckle the indigo evening sky.

Dine on a feast of locally sourced and foraged ingredients, before settling beside a crackling fire. With the moon ascendant, the peaks bathed in silvery light, watch the northern lights waver across the night sky. This ultimate backcountry expedition is the stuff of dreams.
