TERRAIN AND SNOW QUALITY: Alaska is known for big mountains and deep powder. There is an endless variety of terrain and we tailor our choice of terrain based on individual group ability levels and snowpack conditions. There are terrain options for virtually all ability levels – from wide open lower angle slopes to steep faces and spines. The amount of terrain to choose from seems limitless – there are beautiful lines very close to the lodge and flight time is very efficient. Individual runs tend to be in the 2,000 – 3,000+ vertical feet range, with some over 4,000. The number of runs and total vertical groups ski in a given day and/or trip varies depending on a number of factors. We focus on delivering the best experience we can given current conditions.
HELI / GUIDE STAFF: I work with a truly awesome team of guides and pilots in Haines. The pilots are very experienced in the mountains who take the prime directive of “safety first” very seriously. We fly in A-Star B3s , which are perfect for small group heli skiing at Alaska’s lower elevations. When in Haines, I work with a small team of other guides and snow safety professionals; together we focus on safety and delivering the best possible experiences for our guests!
