No other ski experience comes close to Heli-Skiing in Alaska. The steep open faces, consistent and stable marine-snowpack and easy helicopter access means you can ski some of the steepest terrain found anywhere in the world. You can also cruise down endless rolling glaciers and glades or sculpt perfect powder eights on gently sloping moraines overlooking the ocean. There are a number of great heli-ski operations in Alaska from Valdez to Haines but The Chugach Range truly has it all and Chugach Powder Guides will make sure you find whatever it is you're looking for. Based in Girdwood, just a 45-minute drive from Anchorage, CPG has access to 120 miles of mountainous terrain. The four star lodging at Alyeska resort, great lift-accessed skiing at the resort and a cat-operation means the only "down" days you'll have are because you're legs need a rest.
