Terrain

Jeremy Benson at Majestic Heli ski, Alaska
Whether you are a first time heli skier or a savvy veteran your mind will be blown by our mountains and snow. We have a huge amount of terrain that will accommodate intermediates to rock stars. The mountains here are big and there are lots of them, all of which means we have terrain that will put a smile on your face. We ski the Chugach and the Talkeetna Mountains and have access to thousands of square miles of terrain. You can only get the Alaska heli ski experience in AK, there is no substitute.

Majestic Heli Ski offers something for everyone; open bowls, spines, low-angle powder, ramps, couloirs, long glacier runs, perfect powder, and Alaskan steep faces. Vertical descents range from 1,000 feet to 4,500 feet plus (305 meters to 1372 meters). Our skiing takes place in the alpine (no trees) and on glaciers. The elevation band we spend most of our time skiing is typically between 2500 feet (762 meters) and 8500 feet (2590 meters). Lack of snow or powder skiing is rarely on our minds.

The scale and vastness of Alaska can be awe-inspiring, and may take a few days to get comfortable with. The terrain we ski will suit the ability level and pace of your group. Our goal is to find you the best powder skiing you have ever experienced. There are no groomed runs here, all of our skiing is the backcountry environment and provided by Mother Nature.

Alaska has some of the best steep skiing in the world. Our goal is to provide you with a once in a lifetime powder skiing experience and the opportunity to challenge yourself. Skiing the steep lines requires the right combination of weather, snowpack stability, snow quality, skiing ability, and teamwork. When conditions permit, and guests have established confidence and trust with their guide, the opportunity to work into steeper and exposed terrain may be permitted.
