ValdezAlaska, is a famous ski destination that brings to mind the huge lines skied in films from Warren Miller to TGR. This stunning range rises steeply from the Port of Valdez to summits more than 6000’ feet above.

Welcome to Alaska! Now let's start having some fun heli skiing in the backcountry.

The snow density in Valdez is unique in that it sticks to the mountain, making it possible to ski much steeper lines than is possible at other destinations. Skiing in Valdez is not just about the steep lines, it's also about the incredible beauty and vast terrain easily accessed from the road at Thompson Pass. There is plenty out there to suit the desires of advanced intermediate skiers to expert skiers.

We have spent months at a time skiing in this area, spending each day trying a different tour. Also, as we're just a short drive from town we can enjoy the comforts of civilization each evening after a great day on the slopes.

What you should know about our 5 Day backcountry and heli ski combo:

Our 5 day program will give you the full Valdez experience. We'll do three days of backcountry touring, one heli bump day (we'll ride in on a helicopter, and then spend the rest of the day skiing and touring our way back to the road) and one full day of heli skiing. We'll keep the itinerary for these days flexible due to weather and ski conditions.
