Alaska Mountain Women - Wrangell St. Elias

Alaska Mountain Women is an all-female ski mountaineering project founded in Juneau, AK in 2017. In April 2018, six founding members attempted a 21.04 mile ski of the Stikine Icefield, with two first ascents of unnamed, unclimbed peaks. Unfortunately, due to weather and an impassible icefall, the traverse was left incomplete.

This year, AK Mountain women returns, yet this time further north.  In April, a team of eight women hope to complete a first all-female ascent of two unclimbed peaks in the Wrangell St. Elias Range.

Trip Members include: Mary Gianotti, Auri Clark, Katie McCaffrey, Rebekah King, Beth Loudon, Ashley Klassen, Kit Cunningham, Sophia Walling-Bell

Last year we were able to fully fund our trip through grants and donations - and though we know it's not nearly enough - we were able to thank you with stickers designed by our own members!

So, this year, we introduce our second annual sticker. With each donation of $5 or more, we will send you this year's trip sticker, a handwritten thank you card, and of course, an eternity of thanks from our dedicated members!
