H2O Guides Alaska, starting in 1991, was one of the longest, continuously operating, most committed Valdez heli-skiing operator – until it closed permanently. H2O Guides Alaska was founded by Dean Cummings who pioneered remote heliski Alaska guiding in the Chugach Mountains that we now recognize as Valdez Alaska Heli Skiing. Dean Cummings and H2O Guides Alaska, were known for enabling skiers of all abilities to experience Valdez Alaska Heli Skiing.

Two flights connecting daily to Valdez, inclusive packages, four exclusive groups weekly, and the smoothest, steepest heliski Alaska terrain available. Now with cat skiing, too. Nothing compares.
