This trip is for those who want to experience big mountain riding and solitude in a very remote part of the world. Let the guides at SGI handle all the logistics and planning of a big trip like this. Come experience the world class splitboarding Alaska has to offer. You might even get chance to see the Northern Lights while shredding some great lines along the way.
We set out on a remote splitboard expedition for up to 10 days in the most remote parts of Alaska via a small bush plane. Basecamp is set up in an incredible glacial cirque, where nearby big mountain Alaska lines wait. Experience steep ramps, fluted spines and endless amounts of sunshine all with in a day tour from camp. While setting up a comfortable basecamp to spend the next week or so, we will benefit on the luxurious amenities we are able to bring due to the plane assist and be able to concentrate on touring and riding more lines. Let our team of Certified Alaskan Heli guides lead you and your friends on an unforgettable backcountry experience unlike any other.
After our incredible flight soaring over glaciers and untouched valleys into our zone, our first day is spent Winter crafting our basecamp and settling into the good life, followed by a tour around the zone to check our local surroundings. The next day is spent with a refresher on crevasse rescue and gearing the team to perform safely throughout the mountains in the coming days. We give our team 10 days however the weather is a major factor for this type of expedition and we will manage and communicate via a satellite phone and other gps type of communucators for up to date information so we can safely access this range. We’ve all been eyeing our proposed lines for days and now it’s time to work our way up to bigger committing slopes. With good stability, great group communication, excellent teamwork and strong mountain riders we can ride an amazing amount of steep and deep lines on this once in a lifetime plane assisted splitboard expedition.
