If charging big lines is your style, this ski won’t back down. This big mountain ski charger is a stiffer, wider, and full rocker version compared to the more classic 5-point ski, the Eureka, and was previously called Heritage Fat. The 127mm underfoot with early rise will keep you surfing the deep stuff on those bluebird powder days. This is one of our top picks for heli skiing!

Surfy and fun, the Roundtail is a directional powder board that can handle anything you throw at it. Don't let the powder board moniker faze you, it still carves like a champ.

Avalanche Rescue Gear
Float Airbag: The BCA Float avalanche airbag system is designed to keep you on the surface during an avalanche. It is the most proactive snow safety tool you can carry into avalanche terrain. Shovel, Probe, & Transciever: Includes BCA Tracker2 beacon with harness, BCA shovel, and BCA Stealth 300 probe. All of the products are key components to a safe excursion in avalanche terrain.
Crevasse Rescue Gear
Harness and Carabiner are provided for use while skiing in and around crevasses. Our harnesses come in a variety of sizes and will be sized to each guest during orientation.
Boots are the one item that we can’t provide, we suggest carrying your boots onto the plane.
Marker Sole ID bindings are ISO 5355 (alpine norm/19 mm height) and ISO 9523 boot soles (grip walk/28 mm height). Some touring boots may not work with our bindings! Dynafit/tech bindings are not recommended for heli skiing, and we strongly suggest alpine bindings/alpine boots for heli skiing in AK.
