Out in Alaska is a small company founded in 2004 by avid Alaskan explorer Tim Stallard. Prior to that, Tim worked for nine years directing the outdoor education program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and has taken thousands of excited adventurersfrom age 16 to 80 backpacking, camping, mountain biking, dog mushing, mountain climbing, ski touring, snowshoeing, canoeing, kayaking, and rafting all over Alaska in every month of the year!
He has traveled to more than thirty countries, but is always glad to return to the vast, beautiful landscapes of Alaska. He is excited to share this special place with adventurous and fun, open-minded visitors.
Among many outdoor and athletic accomplishments, Tim successfully climbed Denali (Mt. McKinley) the tallest mountain in North America in 1996. In 1998 and 1999 Tim and his teamates placed second (taking 5.5 days) in the Alaska Mountain Wilderness Classic Ski Race that traverses 150 miles of rugged mountains and glaciers in Wrangell St. Elias National Park. Tim was a competitive swimmer growing up and was awarded "Rookie of the Year" his freshman year of college before moving to Alaska to pursue a life of adventure. Before becoming an outdoor educator, Tim spent four summers as a forest fire fighter . Alaska and a summer on a scientific field crew - both jobs involved extensive time working, exploring, and camping in remote areas.
When not guiding trips, in the winter Tim organizes a series of elite Cross Country ski races that are used to select Alaska's Junior National ski team each year. In the summer he leads efforts in Anchorage to control recently arrived invasive weeds, which are threatening Alaska's pristine natural environments.
In his spare time, Tim loves to explore Alaska by cross country skis, Telemark skis, white water kayak, canoe, raft, sea kayak, mountain bike, bush plane, and on foot.
