Valdez Heli Ski Guides Alaska

Valdez Heli Ski Guides operate in the Thompson Pass area of the renowned Chugach Mountains where commonly more than 25 metres (1,000 inches) of snow falls annually. Go heli skiing with Valdez Heli Ski Guides and often you won’t just need a snorkel; you’ll need scuba gear! You won’t make fresh tracks, just fresh trenches!

And considering the legendary maritime Alaskan snowpack, the likelihood of being able to ski the steeps is heightened. The runs might not be as extreme or crazy as those depicted on ski movies, but often the conditions allow for some fantastic pitches to be tackled; the ultimate in steep and deep!

Valdez Heli Ski Guides pioneered guided Alaska heli skiing back in 1993 so they’ve got years of experience at guiding within the Last Frontier.

  • With VHSGs you can have an all-you-can-eat buffet of deep delicious powder! What more could a hungry powderhound ask for?!

Valdez Heli Skiing Terrain

VHSG has massive terrain with more than 2,500 square miles of mountains and 550 ski runs. The pitch of the runs chosen depends on the snowpack stability and the group’s ability, but commonly Valdez Heli Ski Guides access some of the steepest ski terrain in North America. This is big mountain skiing! Runs are spectacularly long; about 3,500 feet on average, and some runs are as long as 5,000 feet. That many powder turns are likely to put the excitement-ometer into overdrive!

Valdez Heli Ski Guides only cater to advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders, and they group riders by ability to fully maximize everyone’s experience. Those new to steep and deep can get tuition on slough management and ride the scenic glacier runs, whilst experienced backcountry skiers can tackle the steep gnarly couloirs when conditions permit.

Weather Alaska heli skiing generally has the shortcoming of frequent bad weather that results in no-fly days. However the weather patterns at Tsaina Lodge are more stable than other parts of the Chugach Mountains, so Valdez Heli Ski Guides only have about 20% down days. On these no-fly days, other activities available include ski touring, ice climbing, sea kayaking, and fishing.
