Recent AMS Pika Custom Ski

AMS director and guide Colby Coombs recently returned from a custom 4 day ski trip into the Pika glacier.  The snowpack conditions we great and the slopes were straightforward for some excellent early season skiing.

The temperatures for camping this time of year are like 17,000' high camp on Denali.  So if you are coming to the Alaska Range in April, bring all your layers and your winter camping A game.

It goes without saying fun was had by all.
