Ice Climbing

Alaska is a premier alpine destination for world-class athletes. Try your hand at ice climbing with the help of a professional guide.

All tours listed below can be book with Alyeska's Concierge Desk: 907-754-2108. The Concierge Desk is located next to the Front Desk at The Hotel Alyeska.


One-Day Winter Ice Climbing

Alaska's water ice flows are always consistent and local venues offer rugged, quick and scenic approaches. Our experienced and certified guides are risk management professionals, we teach everything from the basics to advanced ice climbing techniques. The day is an engaging, fun and challenging experience in the Alaskan wilderness. No experience necessary. 

Transportation included from Anchorage. Trips depart 9 am and are typically six to seven hours long (expect to walk about a mile into the climbs).

Locations include Thunderbird Falls, Portage and The Seward Highway All climbing gear is included. You are fitted with: Koflach or Scarpa climbing boots, crampons, harness, helmet and ice tools. A detailed gear list is provided upon booking (i.e. daypack, lunch, camera, hat & gloves, etc.) Climbers will be required to fill out a Climbing Application and sign a waiver. Trip requires two person minimum and has a 10 person maximum.

Rate: $220


Private Ice Arrangement

For climbers who want a ropegun or those who wish to have a one on one, less structured learning environment, private instruction and guiding is the way to go. Guided climbing is all about doing, while instruction is about learning (through doing). The guides are skilled at both and recognize that sometimes clients just want personal attention.

Many fabulous ice and alpine climbs are available in Alaska year-round. Routes are conditions dependent, and the expert guides will find the right climbs for you. This is also a great way to work on technique, anchors, lead climbing, natural protection placement, rigging, rescue techniques, mixed climbing or Alpinism. Previous climbing experience required. 

Transportation includes pickup from Anchorage or Girdwood Locations include: Caribou Creek, Seward Highway, Portage, Hatcher Pass, Eagle River, Eklutna Glacier, O’Malley, Ptarmigan Peak climbs and Hunter Creek. A detailed gear list is provided upon booking. Climbers will be required to fill out a Climbing Application and sign a waiver.

Rate: $400 per person per day
