The awe inspiring Chugach peaks rise 7'000 feet straigt up out of the Pacific Ocean and harbour a large percentage of Alaska’s temperate valley glaciers.
Alaska Heliskiing and –boarding allows for highest quality experience and is distinctly different from similar adventures further South. The season starts later, the days are longer, the average terrain is steeper and can be skied safely thanks to the specific snow conditions in coastal Mid-Alaska. Mostly you will find a mixture between powder and corn skiing. There is virtually no tree skiing.
Required skiing/boarding skills are mostly above heliskiing average. Challenges possible from advanced to expert levels. Some moderate terrain is available.
Later in the season you could be skiing around the clock, an exciting experience!
