As you may or may not know, the springtime in Alaska is an amazing time for adventures in the mountains. From skiing the huge slopes around Valdez to climbing the classics in Denali National Park. Every year the Colorado Mountain School offers expeditions to Alaska. Below are two that you should consider.
Ham & Eggs Climb
Mooses Tooth, V, 5.9 AI4
One of the 50 classic climbs, Ham and Eggs is a must do for any alpinist. The ideal season is mid/late April to early/mid May. Currently we have a trip scheduled for early May. We'd love for you to join our existing trip or create your own private expedition to Alaska. Give us a call and we can discuss the dates that work best for you.

Valdez Heli-ski Mountaineering
Heli-skiing by itself is amazing but can be uber expensive and many times you can be stuck in the hotel waiting out the weather so the helicopter can fly. Our trip is much more affordable and flexible to insure great skiing and a learning experience while in AK. Our trip has a ski touring base with a heli drop added in. With ski touring, we aren't grounded when the helicopters aren't flying. Click here for more information.
We'd love for you to join either one of these trips. Call today if you have any questions or to get registered.
