HAINES: Haines Alaska is the starting/finishing place for this trip. Haines is a small community located along the fjords at the top of the Inside Passage. The natural beauty and wilderness access found here are responsible for Haines’ reputation as a center for wilderness adventure in Alaska.
GETTING TO THE MOUNTAINS: This trip is scheduled to use ski planes to access the mountains. The flights are beautiful and take us over some of the most heavily glaciated terrain in the world! If for any reason we are unable to fly into the mountains, we will use private vans to transport us to alternate sites in nearby northern British Columbia, or, the Yukon Territory, in Canada.
THE MOUNTAINS: Haines borders Glacier Bay National Park. The Park and the adjacent 27 million acres, including Wrangell-St Elias National Park, comprise the largest protected wilderness area on the planet. It is an extremely jagged, glaciated, mountain landscape. This terrain is amongst the best in North America for learning mountaineering skills, and the climbing, trekking, and skiing here are truly world class!
