North Cascades National Park Skiing

North Cascades National Park offers an enormous variety of skiing, from day trips to multi-day traverses, all set in the majestic backdrop of rugged alpine peaks and glaciers. We can access the park from a variety of trailheads, but much of our skiing lies in the iconic Eldorado and Boston Basin areas accessed via Cascade River Road. Classic ski descents in the area include Eldorado, Sahale, the Forbidden Tour, the Inspiration Traverse and Isolation Traverse.

AMGA Course and Exam Prep

NCMG Owners Jeff Ward, Larry Goldie, and Josh Colle are instructors and examiners for the American Mountain Guides Association guide training and certification programs.  

We often get requests from guides going through the AMGA training program for either additional training for advanced courses or structured preparation for an exam.  If you would like to prepare for an upcoming course or exam please get in touch with us as soon as possible.  Their schedules fill up quickly, especially right before the alpine and ski exams (late summer and late winter).

Liberty Bell - Beckey Route

The Beckey Route is quite possibly the most famous alpine rock climb in all of the North Cascades. Offering the most moderate route up this iconic peak, the Beckey route follows the Southwest face up a clever series of cracks, chimneys and slabs for four pitches to the summit of Liberty Bell.
