    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Ten University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) Outdoor Studies students and two instructors participated in a ten-day expedition to the Juneau Icefield earlier this month.

    After weathering a storm early on, the group enjoyed ideal spring glacier conditions, climbing, and skiing a variety of peaks on and around the Taku Range, including the named mountains Snowdrift, Rhino, and Emperor.

    The course, ODS 245, is a major requirement for ODS programming. Outings like this can only occur with the support of the UAS and Juneau-Douglas community. Specifically, we thank the UAS School of Arts and Sciences, Temsco Helicopters, SheJumps Far North, Eaglecrest Ski Area, Gary Stambaugh, and Nolan Davis.
