Backside Lake is located in the terminal moraine of a glacier that feeds into the Ruth Glacier. The course will be exploring above the lake to the head of Backside Glacier toward Mt. Dickey, and onto the Ruth Glacier and surrounding side glaciers and peaks. This is a stunning landing area, a enclave of green within the rock and ice of the Alaska Range.
