Glacier Valley Trekker
Location: Girdwood’s Glacier Valley meeting at Hotel Alyeska front lobby
Winter Season: Dec 17th 2015 – April 2016
Activity Miles: 1-5
Travel through the snowy meadows and silent rainforests of Girdwood’s Glacier Valley on cross country skis, trekking skis or snowshoes.
Local trails vary from virgin powder to single trek to wide open groomers with your guide providing instruction and naturalist interpretation along the way.
Alaska is a one of a kind winter destination with Girdwood and Alyeska Ski Resort at the center. Temperate rainforests and natural meadows fill with snow in the costal environment surrounded by the snowcapped Chugach Range. Nordic and multi-use trails loop around the backcountry valley.
Ski and snowshoe trekking is a quiet, active way to experience the winter wonderland. We provide high quality backcountry boots, skis and poles for ski trips, please wear your boots for snowshoeing and dress in warm layers and ski gear. When conditions permit we may visit or build an igloo too!
