With fresh powder coating the magnificent Ruth glacier, your guide will lead you to the most pristine slopes. Gaining access to many mountainous places that few humans ever set eyes on, let alone ski. Equipped with climbing harness even the high ice cliffs are not unpassable. Stand atop 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 will be tailored to your personal desires and abilities, whilst also locating the best snow conditions.
Surrounded by grandeur your exploration is not limited to skis, with snowshoe glacier trekking, gourmet picnics, crevasse exploration and sledding runs, there really is something for everyone. Spend your days in the shadow of this majestical mountain or climb to its summit for a view that stretches across Alaska. Experience a sense of peace and calm that is only achieved in such a remote destination.
After a day’s exploration, watch the sun set over the jagged ridgelines offering a soft wash of pastel colours before the still darkness descends. Indulge in a seemingly never-ending feast of locally sourced and wild harvested ingredients, before recuperating by a cozy crackling fire. As the night draws in be dazzled as the heavens sparkle and the moon illuminates the surrounding peaks. Watch the sky become awash with colour as the aurora borealis come to life. This truly is the stuff of dreams and the ultimate backcountry expedition.
