Joe Stock

An avid mountaineer and ski adventurer, Joe Stock has climbed in New Zealand, Australia, and southeast Asia, as well as in both North and South America. In addition, he has also done some epic ski traverses in Alaska. In 2006, he and two companions completed the first ski traverse of the Neacola mountains, covering the 185 km/115 mile-long range in 22 days, encountering icefalls, avalanche-prone slopes and five storms. In 2008, he traversed the Tordrillo Mountains, where he and two friends skied 161 km/100 miles, climbed a total of 11,582 m/38,000 feet, and made ski descents off the four highest peaks, all of which are over 3352 m/11,000 feet. Joe is also an Internationally certified Mountain Guide, and regularly guide clients in Europe and South America, and, of course, in his home “playground” of Alaska. His tent of choice: a Hilleberg Atlas. “I once watched a six person Japanese group set up a massive dome tent in a raging storm on Denali,” says Joe. “They crawled in, laughed, ate and slept as steam puffed from the vent into the three-day storm. Nearby, we shivered through the storm in separate tents. I vowed to find the best group dome tent available. The Hilleberg Atlas was my solution. The Atlas has become the centerpiece of my remote trips in Alaska. Whether it is for skiing, mountaineering or a New Year’s party, the Atlas is my home. The tent is strong: I trust it will stay upright in a raging storm. It’s roomy: there is plenty of room for six to store gear and to hang out. And it’s warm: with the optional inner tent in, the double walls keep the heat in. Having the entire group together, socializing in one cozy group, brings up group moral. The Atlas is the single most impressive piece of outdoor gear I own.” (For more, see stockalpine.com)
