The reason people come from all over the world to ski Alaska; the mountains and the snow. We have 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. You can only get the Alaska heli ski experience in AK, there is no substitute.

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMajestic Heli Ski offers something for everyone; open bowls, spines, ramps, couloirs, long glacier runs, perfect powder, and 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.

 

 

run 1Alaska 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.
