It turns out, you don't always need to charter a bush plane or helicopter to backcountry ski in Alaska! Resident guide, Joe Stock, shows you how to access the drool-worthy lines of Alaska with your own two feet. Think steep snowy spines, massive faces, huge glaciers, endless chutes, and jaw-dropping scenery. Now in its second iteration, The Alaska Factor covers areas throughout southcentral Alaska including Turnagain Pass, Valdez, Girdwood, Hatcher Pass, and the Chugach Mountains. Stock even leads you through the incredible Eklutna and Bomber Traverses. And for the real go-getters, there is also information on skiing in the Alaska Range and on Kodiak Island (planes or ferry required). Over 200 pages and chock full of beautiful photos and helpful maps, The Alaska Factor will leave you eager to experience the raw beauty and extremes of the 49th state.
