Resort Heli Skiing

This heli skiing Alaska adventure is based out of luxurious Hotel Alyeska, tucked amid the Chugach Mountains just 40 miles south of Anchorage. Easy to access yet wonderfully pristine, the Hotel Alyeska’s location is ideal for accessing the Western Chugach Mountain Range, with its 700,000 acres of mountainous terrain featuring gentle bowls, giant mountain faces, massive glaciers, and sheltered tree skiing. Together with highly trained mountain guides, you’ll experience the ultimate backcountry adventure—and see why the Chugach Mountains are recognized for having some of the best heliskiing and snowboarding in the world.

The Itinerary

Day 1

Upon your arrival in Anchorage, your driver will transport you to your hotel for the evening. If there’s time before dinner, ride the 60-passenger aerial tram to the summit of Mt. Alyeska for unrivaled views of the Chugach Mountains, Turnagain Arm and Glacier Valley. Accommodations are at The Hotel Alyeska, in a Deluxe Room.

Days 2-4

Ski Alaska’s Western Chugach Mountains, where 3,000 to 4,000-foot vertical runs are found on hundreds of peaks, providing guests with more powder than they can ride in one trip. It’s all about having an exciting, safe and memorable backcountry experience. Stability and conditions take priority when selecting runs and planning the day. If weather prevents the helicopters from flying at any time, we’ll move to our backup: snow cats. Accommodations are at The Hotel Alyeska, in a Deluxe Room.

Day 5

Spend your final morning heli-skiing. After lunch, you will be transported to the Anchorage Airport in time for your departing flight. Safe travels!
