Kenai Backcountry Adventures Mountaineering Adventures are thrilling, challenging, and rewarding. All of our Mountaineering Adventures take place in areas way off the beaten-track, and in areas rarely visited by others.
Our Mountaineering Adventures range from a mix of activities, traditional mountaineering ascents, and ski-mountaineering (Ski-Mo), all fully-guided by our Alaska Mountaineering Guides.
On our mixed trips we trek across glaciers, ascend peaks, rappel rock faces, hike alpine ridges, and much more.
On our traditional mountaineering trips, our whole mission is to ascend a mountain, a mountain peak, or even a set of peaks. The vast majority of the areas we climb in are glaciated, requiring a full set of glacier mountaineering skills, and equipment.
On on ski-mountaineering trips, we use skis / splitboards as our mode of transportation on the ascent, and of course on the descent. On some mountains, skiing / splitboarding allows for the most efficient method of transportation, even if not ripping a huge line on the way down.
KBA Mountaineering Adventures are geared towards anyone with no to low experience, all the way to advanced professionals that need a solid guide team on board for logistics, safety, etc. Don’t worry if you’ve never been mountaineering before, our professional guides will train and teach you the proper techniques you will need to safely negotiate the terrain and conditions.
As of late, our most popular Mountaineering Adventures have been our Base Camp model trips, that allow us to spend long days mountaineering, returning back to camp each night to fuel and rest up for the next day’s adventure. These trips are primarily all the mixed-style trips.
For the hardcore adventurers looking for an Alaska-size challenge, join us for an ascent of one of our local volcanoes, or a ski-mountaineering trip.
