We’re not for everyone.
If you enjoy fresh mountain air, stunning views, good beer, strong coffee, great people, a fun environment and hard work, we might be for you.
You must be looking for a challenge
Working with us is hard. Sometimes playing is even harder. A day hike that lasts 12 hours. Rappelling down a cold waterfall. Dropping into a bottomless crevasse.
Within a fifteen mile radius, you can explore a glacier, ice climb, rappel down a waterfall, rock climb, whitewater kayak, climb mountains, hike and bike….after a full day of work that is. Our staff average one day off a week and typically work from late May through early September.
You must be willing to commit
A job with us is what you’re doing for the summer. You will not have time to travel around Alaska. If you want to do that then come on up on your own (and book a tour with us.)
It’s up to you to put in the effort to hit the training goals, and get the most out of the experience. We offer a lot of help and encouragement, but you have to do the work.
The community is the reward
We’re not for everyone, but many come back year after year.
Challenges faced with your crew, the hard work and collective efforts creates bonds that are hard to come by in the easy world we live in.
While working with us, quite a few people have found partners to go on to other adventures. A lot of relationships, several marriages and a few children have come out of our little community. (no promise)
New members of the crew live in their own tent at our Base Camp overlooking the glacier. Our camp features wireless internet, a bouldering wall, and a communal kitchen. There’s a primitive shower in camp and more awesome showers are available at nearby lodges.
Expenses while working with us include your food and beer, transportation to Anchorage to start your job, showers, laundry and occasional transportation to town.
Many can’t resist the urge to buy some gear and we get some good deals. There is no charge for living and camping at our Base Camp.
The next step is applying. The only way to do that is by following the instructions.
