The snow-covered harbour town lies hidden on one of Alaska’s large fjords, surrounded by a bizarre mountain world. This combination of arctic and maritime influences allows the Haines area to have the driest and most stable snow conditions on earth.
The result are runs of almost 2,400 m to sea level and better flying weather than anywhere else in Alaska. Haines has long been known to the freeride world and has made a name for itself as Alaska’s “Spine Capital”. The surrounding terrain offers descents of all levels of difficulty. From long, sweeping runs in the flatter area to demanding 45° summit descents – there is something suitable for every level.
You will be accommodated in comfortable lodges in the centre of Haines. During your stay you will have the opportunity not only to explore the surrounding mountains, but also to experience the culture and hospitality of the locals.
