Alaska Heli Skiing, the time is Now

Alaska Heli Skiing Season is MUCH later than British Columbia Heli Skiing

In the Rockies, many of us are putting away our heliski gear and dusting off the bikes, tennis rackets and golf clubs. But in Alaska, heli-skiing prime time is March and April.

What’s heliskiing Alaska like? How is it different from British Columbia heli-skiing?

  • Alaska heliskiing is almost all above tree line
  • Alaska weather is more problematic, both for travel and for skiing (I was once down for 6 days in a row in Valdez). You may have to drive from Anchorage (5 hrs.) because the flights in and out of Valdez are canceled, often.
  • AK is serious steep. They can get as extreme as you can handle. I’m an accomplished powder skier and former ski bum. There are places that will scare the hell out of me.
  • AK is beautiful and wild.
  • We work with some great Alaska heli-skiing operators in both Alaska and BC
  • Alaska helicopter skiing is a later season because of the temps and the daylight. March is the early season. April is still prime time.
  • AK accommodations are not luxurious. Sometimes you commute from a Valdez hotel or stay in a motor home.
  • There is an operator out of Mt. Alyeska that allows you to ‘warm up’ before you heliski/boarding, and offers backup options during bad weather.

So if you are not ready to give up on the steep and deep, drop me a line and I will find the best options for you to do some heliskiing in Alaska!
