From mountaineering classics to the mind numbing potential of ski mountaineering first ascents/descents, we can deliver you to the line of your life.
The stunning, Jeremy Jones, Teton Gravity Research film "Higher", showcases the incredible mountain potential in the Eastern Alaska Range. Basing out of Tok for your first line in the Alaska Range makes logistics simple and affordable. There are multiple lines similar to the one in Jeremy Jones film "Higher", and Tok Air Service can get you within striking distance of your goal.
It's no secret that the weather is always an issue when launching an Alaskan expedition. Our position along the north and east sides of these interior mountains allows for first hand weather observations and more consistent flying opportunities. Because of our ability to take off from a single airport and access two separate ranges, the expeditionary climber/skier is given the rare opportunity to choose between a variety of different rock types and snowpacks. Keeping multiple options open is crucial when weather and avalanche conditions dictate the outcome of any trip.
