I recently returned from a ski mountaineering adventure in the Wrangells w/ Wild Alpine. We were fortunate to stay at the Ultima Thule Lodge and become part of the family that so graciously shares their experiences with their guests.
The setting is pristine and like no other that i've seen anywhere. The cabins are cozy/quaint and super clean. Really luxurious, especially considering the setting. Outstanding, home-cooked meals w/ wine/beer each evening. We had a great fireside chat and marshmallow roasting session w/ Logan, their charming 17yo (going on 25yo!) daughter.
Getting a chance to fly w/ Paul and his crew is like none other. They have a fleet of planes and have access to the wilderness that is unparalled elsewhere.
I can really go on and on... I hate to rave too much b/c I'd love to have the place all to myself. Simply spectacular!
