Winter is wrapping up early in South-central Alaska. Warm temps, blue skies, and rapidly melting snow in town are signaling the change of seasons. While AGC guides are spending more time in the bigger mountains of Alaska this time of the year, we have plenty of good conditions in the mountains around town, and skiing has been great.
The winter had plenty of good times in store. We at the Alaska Guide Collective started offering public avalanche courses. There will be more available next year. We hope to see more students in the future, everyone who attended said they learned a lot and had a great time.
The ice season was also pretty good. I want out with a mix of new and experienced climbers. Objectives were located around the Anchorage area, and I also was able to get some guiding done in Valdez. The big ice climbs there are phenomenal!
Lets hope next winter is even better than the one we just had.
