There is nothing like the bright stillness of Auyuittuq in the spring. Leaving behind the rockfalls and rushing waters of summer, skiing offers unparalleled freedom of movement to explore and experience.

Ski travel in Akshayuk Pass is usually best accomplished along the Weasel River and Owl River valleys. Metal edged skis with skins, snowshoes or boots with attachable crampons are recommended. The Akshayuk Pass traverse can normally be accomplished in 8-12 days, not including transportation to the park. Keep in mind that weather may delay travel for one or more days.

Although your skis can take you to many peaks and glaciers, most actual ascents will require technical climbing and glacier travel skills and equipment.
