AMS Custom Mountaineering, Voorhis 7/30

AMS custom family trip has been delayed a flight into the Alaska Range due to poor flying conditions. That doesn't stop the fun and mountaineering skills: they drove to the Matanuska Glacier this morning to camp and learn ice-climbing skills until the weather improves. Fun family and great crew of instructors.

PJ, Christine, Donna and Paul; Fischer family from Park City Utah that has come to Alaska for a unique opportunity to vacation on a glacier.
