In 2011, PNH obtained a non-motorized ski touring permit from the U.S. Forest Service in the Cordova Ranger District. This permit is the first of its kind in the Chugach.
You are invited to come visit PNH this spring and help continue their program in terrain that has never seen tracks, up or down, before. This is a rare opportunity as it’s your chance to have limitless first descents and be part of the naming of an entire new “zone” in PNH’s newly permitted ski touring area.
All groups are flown from PNH’s base in Cordova to one of their Arctic Oven tents complete with wood stove, food and the necessities to be comfortable in the mountains. Groups will have the opportunity to ski from the front door without the pressure of heli ski groups around you. All trips will be tailored to your needs and desires. The terrain out your doorstep is limitless with many different options.
Since you’ll be visiting and skiing as backcountry skiers and mountaineers, there is an assumption that you will show up to Cordova with the necessary equipment to have a safe, enjoyable stay. All trips are with one of PNH’s certified guides. However, it is highly recommended that you read up on avalanche safety techniques and glacier travel protocols before your trip. This will be refreshed with you prior to departure into the mountains. Please contact Expedition Broker for a complete equipment list for the Chugach Backcountry Camp.
