Eklutna Traverse: A Changing Adventure?

March 14, 2014 - 2:00 pm

The Eklutna traverse, near Anchorage, crosses four glaciers alongside the rugged peaks of Chugach State Park. The 38-mile trip is a popular spring adventure for local and visiting mountaineers. On the next show, host Annie Feidt will talk with two experts who know the Eklutna Traverse intimately — they’ve skied across the glaciers, explored the traverse’s steep backcountry and studied the rate the glaciers are retreating. We’ll delve into whether changing glaciers mean a changing adventure.
