RV Camping / Touring Access

Our primary base also serves as an RV campground with wifi access, a warm yurt to dry out gear in. Most of the ASG staff members stay on Thompson Pass in favor of the epic sunsets, northern lights and jam sessions in the common yurt. If you’re still up for more after your day in the helicopter a few minute sled bump will get you a decent averaging over 2,000 ft to the road where you can easily walk back to your RV. The sunset light lasting to 9 or even 10pm is incredible in the spring and if you bring your skins you can continue your ascent to get an even bigger line.
