Steep and deep. Anything you are looking for you will find it here, minus the crowds. Sunny days can be few and far between, but when the snow pack is right this is THE place to be. Veteran skier Matt Kinney wrote an exceptional guide that is available online and should be purchased if you plan on coming here. www.thompsonpass.com is an excellent up to date resource for weather, route information, and avalanche updates courtesy of Matt Kinney.
How to Get There
Fly into Anchorage then hit the highway to Valdez, five or six hours of drive time depending on the weather/season. Flights can also be made from Anchorage and take about 40 minutes, but the drive is beautiful and shouldn't be missed. One can also take the ferry out of Whittier which also shouldn't be missed. Enjoy!
