    Default Alaska HeliSkiing

    I am putting together another group to go to Alaska for 2 weeks in March 2014 (this will be my 8th year going up there) Is anyone interested in joining us or have any questions? I know quite a bit about all the Ops up there and have my favorite. Let me know if your up for the Steep and Deep!

    • 4 heli-hours generally is equivalent to 3 days of flying at around 8-10 runs per day.

    Warren Miller Makes it all look Pretty extreme but its not..With So many 1000's of Acres of Terrain, there is always something for everyone.

    We usually have a couple choppers full in our group, One with first timers and another full of Veteran riders who want to be pushed. I have a great return rate every year with about 50-75% of the group coming back for another go.

    The reason I put theses trips together is to make sure that you are in a heli with people who are at the same basic level (which i can usually deduce from a quick conversation about your skills) So again, there is always something for someone, and if you really want to push your personal limits, you can come with me

    As a two-time AK skier I can't recommend TJ's trip enough. The first trip was to tick off a bucket list item but I got hooked - hence the second and the now inevitable trips to come. TJ does a fantastic job of getting you organised and motivated before departure and then makes sure the trip itself is unforgettable. If you're thinking about heli-skiing in AK this is the only way to go!

    Hi,
    I've been going to Tahoe every year for the past 10 years, this coming season will be my 11 th

    If you go the following season, I will be keen.
    I assume you fly into anchorage ? Drive to lodging? What's the go with transfers etc etc?
    I own my own car in San Fran, I might even check out drive time! What a road trip that would be!!!! I've been through 38 lower states but never been to Alaska, would love to do it.
    Is there any ski resorts nearby to warm up? Have you got the names.? I will google earth it
    Thanks
    Dan
