Alaska Heli-skiing and Heli-boarding
Helicopter skiing should be on every skier or riders must-do list and is often peoples best day of their life! Even better is to combine a trip of heli-skiing and backcountry skiing. Nick can offer you heli-skiing one day and a backcountry touring trip the next. Heli-skiing is not just for the expert skiers and riders like you see in the movies, you may be surprised on how much lower angle skiing we can offer. If avalanche conditions are stable, the weather is good and your groups ability matches up then we have plenty of the big steep lines you may be after.
