Friends, movies and pictures took our motivation to explore new areas… Alaska. Valdez and the Chugach range of Alaska are probably one of the best places in the World to ski.

Ski touring in the Chugach range and Wrangells-Saint Elias National Park, accessing to the mountains by small aircraft or by car to the high passes.

We can also customized your Heliski program during our trip where we operate with Points North Heliskiing in Cordova, Valdez Heliski Guides or the guys from Girdwood, Chugach Powder guides.

This trip is for people who love turns in good snow, cold temperatures and feel passion for skiing. These trip’s itineraries below are just a guideline.
