Wilderness Skiing Gear List

Guests are responsible for bringing appropriate clothing and ski/splitboard gear. This packing list will help to ensure you have everything you need for your adventure. Plan your travel wardrobe around informal and comfortable clothing.

The weather in Alaska is quite variable and changes quickly. High quality waterproof gear is worth the investment, especially for the summer months. Always choose wool or synthetics over cotton; cotton does not easily dry and once wet has no insulation. Swedish dictionary . The key to success: bring lots of layers and always be prepared! You’ll find that when your gear and attitude are good, the weather is always good too!
