Valdez Heli-Ski Guides offer some of the most exciting heliskiing and boarding in the world. Aimed at strong and experienced skiers and riders, the groups are small, the mountains are big, and the descents just go on and on!
Alaska’s Chugach mountains are world renowned and the playground for many of the world’s top extreme skiers, including Valdez Heli-Ski Guides founder, Doug Coombs. The skiable terrain accessed by VHSG covers over 2,500 square miles offering everything from scenic glacier runs and powder bowls to steep couloirs and big mountain faces, assuring great skiing and riding. The unique maritime climate provides over 1,000 inches (25 metres) of snow annually, and the stable composition of the snow allows safe skiing on some of the steepest terrain and deepest powder in North America.
Accommodation is provided at the Tsaina Lodge, just steps away from the VHSG helipad. With 16 single and 8 double rooms, the lodge boasts views of the Worthington Glacier. At the end of an exhilerating day’s skiing, guests can enjoy gourmet steaks and fresh local seafood, unwind in the bar or relax in the reading room.
