WHAT’S THE BEST TIME OF THE SEASON TO VISIT?

There truly isn’t a bad time

to join us during our short

spring season. March has slightly colder temperatures,

but the powder is dry and deep. The days get longer

in April, the temperatures are more moderate, and the

powder skiing continues to be fantastic.

WHAT TYPE OF TERRAIN SHOULD I EXPECT TO SKI?

Runs are selected at your guide’s discretion, which is

dependent on weather, snow conditions, and skiers’

skill levels.

The Chugach offers everything

, from some

of the steepest and most thrilling terrain in the world to

wide open powder bowls. VHSG caters to the advanced

to expert skier and rider so our guests are typically

experienced deep-powder skiers who enjoy an adventurous steep-skiing experience.

HOW MANY RUNS SHOULD I EXPECT TO SKI IN A DAY?

A day with VHSG averages six to eight runs at 3,000 to 5,000 vertical feet per run. Expect to ski

100,000-120,000 vertical feet during your ski week

. Yes, we ski a lot! Note, though, that the

number of runs depends on group ability, snow conditions, and weather. There have been days

when we’ve been able to ski as many as twelve runs. Mmmm!

WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY’S AGENDA?

Weather dependent, a normal day starts with a breakfast buffet served from 7 to 8:30am.

The ski day starts at the heli-pad at 9am

. Lunch is enjoyed in the mountains. We typically

finish skiing between 3 and 6pm. Dinner is served shortly after 6pm.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE

WEATHER ISN’T COOPERATING?

SNOWCAT SKIING

On average we are able to

heli-ski five out of seven days

each week, but sometimes the

clouds (filled with snow) do roll

in. VHSG offers cat skiing

directly behind the lodge on

these no-fly days.
