2013 Season Begins and Expedition Update!

We started our season this past week-end with a Glacier Travel & Crevasse Rescue workshop at the Matanuska Glacier.  Instructors Melis Coady and Sean Fallon were excited to be teaching.  We heard from one of the students and both instructors that it was a great week-end!

Today AMS guides Josh Hoeshen and Betsy Young arrived at AMS.  They will be packing gear and food for an upcoming job as AMS safety consultants with a new BBC TV program.  They will be off in a few days!

We still have some spaces available on our Denali West Buttress Expeditions.

Fifteen Day Mountaineering
  ~We have been running this course for years in conjunction with our regular 12 day Mountaineering Course, we thought it was time to let this course come into its full potential. It is a fly in 12 day mountaineering course with a 4 day hike out through the tundra. This is a lot of hard work with serious wilderness, climbing and fun.  It is a huge instructor and student favorite!
