TRAINED. EXPERIENCED. PASSIONATE.
The leaders of our adventures are our epically experienced guides — recognized as some of the best in the business — who are teamed with riders at a low 4:1 or 3:2 ratio. Many of them have been skiing in the Chugach since heli-skiing arrived in 1989. They’ve won medals in extreme skiing and have worked just as hard earning certifications as the most highly qualified mountain guides, avalanche predictors, and medical first responders. On vacation, they ski and climb the biggest peaks in the Himalayas, the Alaska Range, the Alps, and the Andes. In the three decades we’ve been flying, our guides have developed a safety program designed to minimize the risks, including thorough mountain safety, avalanche rescue, and helicopter safety trainings for every guest whose boots enter the chopper.
The amazing Chugach lines you see skied in movies are real, but the majority of our runs aren’t nearly so death-defying. Our guides have hosted skiers and riders from all over the world, with all levels of advanced mountain experience. If you’re able to keep a controlled run on the in-bounds steeps of a major resort, they can make sure you have the time of your life in Alaska. Our thorough safety program, experienced guides, excellent ski conditions, and stable snowpack mean you’ll be able to ski the kind of terrain that makes Alaska heliskiing legendary the world around.
