Skiing to the Matanuska Glacier

We’ll ski to the toe of the mighty Matanuska Glacier.  The ski will be on and off the frozen creek and through some brush, but mostly open terrain.  We’ll ski approximately 9 miles with a lunch stop at the glacier.  Be prepared for cold and wind. Make sure you have lunch, water, and extra layers (especially for wind).   

***For those skiing with dogs: this tour is along an active trap line.  Your dog must be on a harness and leashed to you at all times! ***
