Now accepting applications for the 2017 summer season.

Join our Crew and experience a beautiful part of Alaska.  You might even make some friends and contacts that will lead you to adventures around the world!

Our community of outdoor enthusiasts work hard and play hard.  We believe in getting off of the couch and getting things done, professionally and personally.  From guiding climbs and treks on the glacier, to skiing in Colorado, to working in Antarctica, you will not only be signing up for a job, but joining one big, adventurous family.

Three great companies. One awesome crew.

We operate three companies based in Glacier View. While some positions may work more in one part of the operation than another, it’s all the same team that lives, works and plays together for the summer…and often beyond.

Check out the website links for a complete picture of each operation.

Positions

We have two types of positions:

 

Professional positions require that you show up, and with a minimal amount of training, you’re ready to do your job.

 

Internships are training positions, and we invest a lot of time and energy in that training. See more on our Internship program below.

Internships

We grow our own! An internship is a great opportunity to get on board with us. Since many of our crew return year after year, there are often few openings for people to enter into a professional position. Many good Interns are invited back in professional positions after their first season.

In return for a lot of hard work, Interns receive a stipend to help cover living expenses.  There is also opportunity for a bonus to offset travel expenses, in addition to tips.

While many of our Interns are students completing an internship for their educational program, this is not a requirement for the job with us. We do, however, work closely with Interns to help meet any school requirements.
