The Isolation Traverse Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This multiday tour connects the Inspiration and Neve Glaciers, visiting the very wild and isolated country between the Cascade River Road and the North Cascades Highway. It includes some great ski descents, especially when done from south to north as described here.

It requires good route?nding and a full range of ski mountaineering skills. The trailheads at either end of the traverse are fairly low (2160 feet and 1150 feet), so many will choose to bring a pair of light shoes to make the walking more comfortable."
