Range of Glaciers

Flight Details

Glaciers are the defining feature of the North Cascades. The range is home to the greatest concentration of perennial snowfields and alpine glaciers in the contiguous United States.

This route traverses rugged landscapes, connecting some of the highest peaks and most magnificent glaciers in the North Cascades.


This flight is inspired by Fred Becky’s book, “A Range of Glaciers: The Exploration and Survey of the Northern Cascade Range.” A resident of Seattle, Fred is North America’s most celebrated mountaineer. He holds the world’s record for the most first ascents, including many in the North Cascades.

Customer Feedback & Photos

Greatest Flight Experience

"This photo was taken last weekend from a small plane above the North Cascades. It was the greatest flight experience I've had in my life so far. And it was mainly due to having an amazing pilot, Wayne from @snowkingaviation. Like myself, Wayne is so enthusiastic about the outdoors and that was evident when he circled this lake a bunch of times to help me get this shot."

Prepare to Fly

Important information to help you prepare for your flight.

Bring your Camera

Snowking flights are ideal for aerial landscape photography. We will be sensitive to lighting and camera/airplane positioning. Visibility is excellent in all directions, and the passenger can open and close a side window at will for the best possible image quality.

Weather

If your flight is canceled due to weather, you can choose to reschedule, receive a full refund, or select a gift card redeemable for a future flight.

Out Premier Location

We are located on the edge of North Cascades National Park at Mears Field in Concrete, Washington. Our base of operations is the best location for flightseeing in the area. Surrounded by mountains, you’ll enjoy alpine spectacles right after take-off with no aerial commute to the scenery.

We Fly Year-Round

Fall colors, emerald lakes, waterfalls, mountain faces loaded with snow–the North Cascades are spectacular in every season.
