Some of the best skiing in the world is where most skiers don’t go. Sometimes it’s a short hike or a traverse to get to the un-skied lines; the steeper slopes, the narrow chutes, tight trees and cornices. This is where the best skiing on any mountain is hidden. It’s challenging terrain that requires strong skills to be safe. After winning two World Extreme Skiing Championships and skiing Alaska for 20 years, Kim Reichhelm and her staff have the knowledge and experience of big mountain skiing to help you take your skiing to the next level.
Steep Camps are designed to help skiers work on their techniques in a safe, controlled environment. The Alyeska Steep Camp is for expert skiers. Here you will be challenged the most with steep long runs, chutes, and deep snow.
Each Steep camp is limited to 12 participants and groups are divided by ability and aggressiveness. We meet each morning to discuss the day’s agenda and hit the slopes first thing. Early bird days, accessing the lift an hour before it opens to the public, are a special treat when you ski with Kim. At the end of the day we watch our day’s video and take care of equipment needs while enjoying some refreshments and rewards of a great ski day.
