Depending on the year and one's motivation, we can ski well into June

"We love to ski and our clientele love to ski. Our ultimate goal is to develop a program that offers a ski touring adventure during every season of the year". This comes from an excited Dick Jackson, whose smile gets bigger the more he contemplates this new Eurpoean guided adventure.

One would think that after five months of cold and snowy weather that even the most die hard skier would be ready for a break. Actually, for most of the fanatic backcountry skiers in the Colorado Rockies, the best skiing begins when the lift service ends at the ski resorts. "Depending on the year and one's motivation, we can ski well into June", say Aspen Expedition's Worldwide Manager Andy Crisconi. "Around the third week of June, I think we have all put the skis away and have pulled out the mountain bikes and rock climbing gear." 

This is exactly the type of client perfectly suited to Aspen Expedition's latest ski touring adventure - Summit to Sea!

Take a boat ride to a different peak each morning, skin or snowshoe up 2500 to 3000 feet to the summit, take in the remarkable views and then ski down from the summit to our awaiting boat in the sea. Guests spend each night enjoying the comforts and great cooking provided by the newly built European-style Lyngen Lodge. Our concept offers the client a grand combination of outdoor physical exercise, ultimate ski touring adventure and comfortable relaxation all with an 8 day timeframe. Our vacation time is precious and this trip is all about packing in quality. We take care of everything for you once you land in Tromso, Norway. 

Please contact Aspen Expeditions as to the availability of their upcoming April departure date. Look for this trip to be featured in the March issue of Outside Magazine.

Based in Aspen, Colorado in the heart of the magnificent Rocky Mountains, Dick Jackson is the owner and managing director of Aspen Expeditions. Since 1976, Dick and his talented staff of American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) certified and/or Wilderness First Responder (WFR) trained guides have been guiding and teaching rock, ice, ski & alpine mountaineering skills. In conjunction with their friends in Norway at the Lyngen Lodge, Aspen Expeditions has recently added their most unique skiing adventure. There are some places on earth that create lasting impressions on us, where contrasting colors and memories of dramatic scenery remain vivid and unforgettable. The Lyngen Peninsula is definitely one of these destinations. The last ice age carved these mountains, and has left us with perfectly shaped terrain that simply mesmerizes skiers into carving their lengths from the summit directly into the sea. The concept of the trip is beautiful in its simplicity.

Aspen Expeditions takes pride in the service it delivers and this is confirmed by our high percentage of repeat clientèle and referrals. Our commitment to guides' AMGA certified or trained status is Aspen Expeditions' credentials. Come join us for a memorable experience.
