Wilderness skiing is about moving from one alpine project to the next. Our wilderness is so vast, there are countless projects to complete. Those who know it best have given it many nicknames: the Kingdom, the Thules, the Far Far Gnar Gnar.
Out here, some days are about summit bids and blower pow descents. Others are just right for leisurely exploration. From cross-country skiing to the longest and most aggressive lines on Earth, options abound in this mecca of wilderness touring.
As with all Wild Alpine adventures, the itinerary for your next Spring Wilderness Ski Getaway is entirely unique and customized to your interests. These extraordinary adventures can originate in most Alaskan towns. A minimum of two nights are required for stays at Ultima Thule Lodge.
