2021 Denali Team Name Competition!

auto draft

Headed to Denali this Spring? Start planning that team name! Every expedition cooks up a team name they use to identify themselves when they check in each day via sat phone for the Cybercast. Family members can follow along with the Cybercast from home as teams make their way up the mountain, marveling at clever puns and upward progress. You can also usually expect a culinary recap of what the group had for their high-altitude dinner. Admittedly, the meal rundown is less than riveting but at least friends and family know their loved ones are well fed while they undertake the highest peak in North America. Check out some of the past Denali Cybercasts here to get a taste (no pun intended) of what to expect.

For 2021, we’re going to put your creativity and topical mountain humor to the test! Once all team names are in for the season, we’ll have a vote to see which name reigns supreme.  The winning team will get featured on our social media channels and live on in Alpine Ascents International history for the ages. 

 May you find inspiration and a smile from the following selection of excellent team names from the past several years. 

  1. Vern Baby Vern (team led by Vern Tejas)
  2. Rage Against the Latrine 
  3. Dónde Está Denali
  4. CMC Brewing Company
  5. Bullet Riding Tundra Wookies
  6. Glo Mar Expeditions
  7. Willie Prittie Tribute Gang
  8. Birds of Danger
  9. Whitewalkers
  10. Bearly There 

Honorable Mentions: Less Worse, Heavy Haulers, CMC’s & Gasoline

Update:  The game is afoot!  Team names are starting to roll in. 
The May 1 Denali has set the bar at a solid…medium.   A respectable first move, but we suspect the best is yet to come.

  • Denali Prep Course: Lessons Learned

    by Ciara Sampaio I went over the Denali Prep Gear List a million times and checked everything off.   I was ready to go!   Was I really ready to go?   Eventually, I just had to go.  Checking off the carabiners and gloves was the easy part.  I found assembling 8 days worth of food to be […]
