Valdez, Alaska

Backcountry / Heli Ski Combo  – March 12-16th, 2018

Valdez Alaska is a famous ski destination, that brings to mind the huge lines skied in ski films from Warren Miller to TGR. This stunning range rises steeply from the port of Valdez to summits more than 6000’ feet above. The snow in Valdez is unique in that it is dense enough to stick to the mountain making it possible to ski much steeper lines than is often possible in other popular ski destinations. But skiing in Valdez is not only about the steep lines, it is also about the incredible beauty and vast ski terrain easily accessible from the road at Thompson Pass. The terrain is not all steep and gnarly, there is plenty of terrain to fit the desire of fit skiers advanced intermediate to expert skiers.

We have spent months at a time skiing in this area, doing a different exciting tour each day. Only a short drive from town we can enjoy the comforts of civilization each evening and skiing in the vastness of Alaska every day!
