TSAINA LODGE

HISTORY
Alaska heli-ski history began at the Tsaina Lodge

Here, the World Extreme Skiing Championship introduced the world to the slopes of the Valdez Mountains, and two-time WESC winner DOUG COOMBS founded us as one of the first Alaskan heli-ski companies. Valdez Heli-Ski Guides took to the skies to scout lines in the nooks and crannies of the Chugach Range, and our explorational approach changed the sport forever.

Thirty years of experience, innovation, and investment later, Valdez Heli-Ski Guides takes off each morning from the Tsaina Lodge, and a dedicated group of skiers travel here every year to team up with the sport’s foremost guides.

We got into the business because we love heli-skiing. We welcome you whether you’re a skier or a snowboarder. We’re caught up in the history of this historical lodge and the majesty of these great mountains, and it’s something we’re passionate about sharing and supporting.

We don’t want you to think of us as a vacation spot, or as a once-in-a-lifetime trip. We want you to feel a part of this amazing place, so we offer memberships rather than reservations, offering packages of weeks for groups of up to eight built around our core members. Become part of the three-decade community dedicated to skiing the best terrain on the planet.

BAR & KITCHEN

KITCHEN

The Tsaina kitchen is exceptional, offering food good enough that people drive up the pass just to join us for dinner. Our locally sourced menus showcase fresh Alaska seafood, prime meats, and game.

BAR

Our bar also has a reputation, one earned through 30 years of celebrating once-in-a-lifetime runs. Ask any extreme skier or Chugach local, and they’ll tell you that our bar is a ride as famous as the ones outside. We started the party decades ago, and Mother Nature just keeps bringing the refreshments.
