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 third 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 220 pages and chock full of beautiful photos and helpful maps that include slope angle overlays, The Alaska Factor will leave you eager to experience the raw beauty and extremes of the 49th state.

Question from Dan
Any idea where this book may still be available? Thanks!
Answer from James R
Hey Dan, we've also been trying to restock this book! A little birdie told us it's out of print in order to make room for an even newer edition but details are lacking. In the meantime, I'd suggest reaching out to the author Joe. You can also try some of the gear shops in Alaska to see if they have one kicking around, such as AMH.
Answer from Daniel B
Thanks for the response James! I've emailed Joe and I'll call a couple shops.
