Wosnesenski Glacier

Skiing glaciers in the Kenai Mountains of Alaska
First, we flew into the heart of the Kenai Mountains in a float plane and landed on a glacial lake. We hiked up the moraine of the Wosnesenski with crampons on our feet and skis on our packs. We camped on the glacier for three nights and skied glorious corn snow everyday. Once we skied off of the glacier, we pumped up a pack raft we'd stashed at the lake and floated the Wosnesenski River 16 miles to where the glacial melt meets the ocean. It was incredible! Those looking to recreate the experience should look into outfitters in Alaska who offer guided glacier tours and river floats. Due to the remote nature of the Kenai Range, it is harder to find guided tours there, but similar experiences can be found in Glacier Bay National Park near Juneau.
