Skiing to the Matanuska Glacier

Meet at 8:30 a.m. at Carrs Muldoon where we’ll drive up to Caribou Creek pullout (Mile 106 of the Glenn Hwy) to ski to the toe of the mighty Matanuska Glacier. We will meet skiers coming from the Sheep Mountain Lodge weekend. The ski will be on and off the creek and thru some brush, but mostly open terrain.  We’ll ski approximately 8 miles. Be prepared for cold and wind (temperatures can dip below zero at this time of year). Make sure you have lunch and water.  If you choose to meet at the trailhead, be there at 11:00 a.m.

***For those skiing with their dogs, traps are in the area.  Please bring a leash for your dog on this tour! ***
