Having returned to my ordinary 'Life after Alaska', my world seems flat. It is as if the Alaskan adventure has erased a dimension from my landscape. Everything here seems smaller, less dramatic, and less steep. Even the Rockies seem plain.

Alaska Heli Skiing: The Experience of a Lifetime

Dates: March 14-21 | March 21-28 | March 28 – April 4 | April 11-15 (Iceland) | April 15-21 (Iceland) | April 21-25 (Iceland)


Helicopter skiing is the ultimate ski experience. There is nothing better than the solitude, tranquility and beauty that heli-skiing brings. The first time Kim heli-skied was in Alaska was in 1991. It was the best skiing experience of her life. Since then she has been lucky enough to heli-ski every year, bringing skiers of all levels into the mountains where the snow is untracked, the runs are long, and you are the only people on the slope. Every year Ski with Kim offers helicopter ski trips for a variety of skiers and ski ability. If you are interested, contact us and we can create the ideal trip for you. If you already have experience and are looking for a compatible group, let us put you with the right people. Many of our clients heli-ski every year, and depend on us to put them in a group of similar ability and experience. There is a reason why we have an 85% return clientele.

If you have never been heli-skiing, let’s remove some of the myths that exist.

You don’t jump out of the helicopter. The helicopter lands at the top, everyone gets out, and the guide unloads the skis from the basket, which is outside the helicopter. Once everyone and everything is secured the helicopter takes off.

You don’t ski runs like you see in the movies, unless you want to. Heli-skiing offers something for everyone. There are beginner, intermediate and experts runs in the backcountry, just like a ski resort. What’s most important is, you are in a group with similar ability and experience and have a guide who knows your expectations.

You will not be pushed outside your comfort zone or be left behind. Every trip includes a terrain progression. All groups start on easy slopes, and as the snow pack proves to be stable and the group builds their confidence, the difficulty level will increase.

As guides, we communicate with you to make sure you are getting what you want. If it’s first descents or wide-open glacier fields, we can deliver. When you Ski with Kim you always get two guides, a lead and a tail. Someone will always have your back.
