Travel to Haines Alaska Heli Skiing
Getting to Haines is part of the adventure. If you are traveling from the Lower 48, or ‘Down South’ as Alaskans call it, fly to Juneau from Seattle via Alaska Airlines. From Juneau, it’s best to take the ferry to Haines. The ferry is rarely affected or cancelled due to weather, and costs only $50 per person to walk on. Flying to Haines is possible and costs about $130 per person. However, flights are affected and cancelled due to weather, so make your schedule around the ferry.
If you are traveling to Haines from Canada or Europe, flying to Whitehorse via Vancouver may be the best choice. However, you must rent a car in Whitehorse for a four-hour spectacular drive and cross the US-Canadian border. Four wheel drive is advised.
Options on Down Day?
Cross-country skiing, ice fishing, ice skating, and ice climbing.
What is Unique / Why Alaska Heliskiing?:
Unique because if it happens to be a week that has more precip than sunshine folks are not as financially committed to a trip to Alaska Heliskiing that turned out to be less than perfect. In other words it’s a safe bet and these trips are much easier for us to sell and bookings have gone up because of the concept! We are stoked and so are our guests. Go big if conditions are epic and you can afford to buy more runs or keep it affordable if the weather moves in or if you’re not a high roller you can still come in and have a great time Heliskiing in Haines Alaska.
