Who Can Go Heli Skiing and Heli Boarding?

Contrary to popular belief you do not have to be an expert to go heli skiing or heli boarding; all you need is a good attitude, respect for the mountains, and be of intermediate ability or better. We cater to solid intermediates to experts and welcome first time heli skiers and heli boarders. Untracked powder and epic skiing is our goal, and prior big mountain or powder experience is great, though not necessary. Our guides will not only guide you to, and through the terrain that is suitable for you, but are also great instructors and coaches.

We recommend an exercise program prior to your trip and it is even better to show up with several ski days under your belt. Be prepared to ski a full day, similar as you would at a ski resort. The vertical skied from day to day can vary, though expect to ski around 15,000 vertical feet each day (4572 meters).

A group is up to five guests (never more, usually less, group weight restrictions may apply) and one guide. Guests are grouped according to ability and like mindedness to the best of our ability. We strive to ski high quality powder and terrain that suits your skill level.

 

 

The Alaska heli ski environment is awe-inspiring and it may take a few days to wrap your head around the size and scale of Alaska. You are coming to Alaska for a different experience, so please embrace it. If you love to ski, or even like to ski, a trip to Alaska is like nothing you will have ever experienced. Not only is the skiing amazing, but so is every aspect from the skiing, to the food, to the helicopter ride, the scenery and memories that will last a lifetime.
