Feb 15 Updates

AMS Climber on Peak 11,300' Ruth Glacier Alaska Range, AMS custom climb.

Julia is away for a few weeks so our dear old friend and the past AMS Admissions manager, Frannie and I are steering the ship at the AMS HQ.

The sun keeps shinning here in Talkeetna and the temperature is creeping up, it was 35 F today. Spring is coming slowly but surely.

The skiing is excellent and the groomers are working hard on the nordic ski trails on the frozen lakes, rivers, and through the birch and spruce forest. Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 20th and come on up to Talkeetna's 25 & 50 K Oosik Nordic Classical Ski Race, super fun for all!

The AMS office is accepting applications and confirming custom climbs for this spring, there will be lots of fun in the Alaska Range this year.

Feel free to contact us if you want to sign up or get a quote for a custom climb.
