Respect and mountain travel ethics
We do not operate snowmachine ski transportation/sled skiing on the snow cat trails or the terrain they access up Odyssey-moonlight basin. Snowcat trails are ski lifts going up and ski runs going down for families, locals and visitors. Please enjoy and explore all of Thompson pass but stay away from the locals loved snowcat skiing areas on your sleds.
Surviving and enjoying the mountains while avoiding causing conflict requires a education and experience in alpine travel. Learn good mountain skills, get good gear and good partners, take avalanche awareness, First aid, wilderness medicine and crevasse /high angle rescue courses …..then go get the treasure.
Set and respect good trails, boot packs and skin tracks. Boondork and highmark far away from sled-skiing areas and double up trails, “Slow down!!!” and “Stay on the trail!!!”. Get an 800 with at least a 151 track to roll up our steep trails. Please dont learn on our time, train up at home or build an easier trail off on your own.
Most all of the runs we do cross or access glacial terrain fraught with hidden crevasses, moats, bershrunds, seracs and cornices. Wear a harness and helmet, carry a ski rope, crampons, ice axe and crevasse / avalanche rescue gear. Read our primer on mountain ethics and skills. Mountain Travel (link)
In the spirit of the Chugach and keeping with local Valdez tradition we offer the last self-guided backcountry powder riding transportation available. To ride with us sign a waiver, bring a shovel, avalanche beacon and probe and your own self rescue and insurance plans.
See you in Valdez.
