Safety and Risk Management:

Due to the nature of outdoor travel there are certain inherent risks in all of Outdoor Adventures’ trips.  Acceptable risks include but are not limited to; hiking or skiing over rough uneven terrain with a backpack on, hiking or skiing up and down steep inclines with rough or icy surfaces, natural and manmade hazards (such as trees, rocks, power poles, fences, and equipment), other skiers on the trails, wildlife on the trails, having wet feet and clothing in the winter.  Conditions may include below freezing temperatures, snowstorms, rain, sleet and high winds.  Driving risks may include slick roads, poor visibility and wildlife.  Alaska is a wild place - you need to take ultimate responsibility for your own safety as only you can. For your protection we require you to carry health insurance.  You can purchase insurance for $2.60/day from the University (ask for details). All info is subject to change due to safety, weather, current conditions, etc.!
