April 2019 - HELI SKIING
When we find something good, we keep going back. Girdwood is located 30 miles south of Anchorage at the base of Alyeska Resort and home of Chugach Powder Guides (CPG). We heli-ski in a permit area covering over 700,000 acres of mountainous terrain with gentle bowls, giant mountain faces, massive glaciers and sheltered tree skiing.
Home away from Home
Our accommodations at the luxurious Hotel Alyeska offer all the amenities one needs for a first-class vacation including ski-in, ski-out access. Alyeska Resort is an established ski destination known for its steep terrain and deep snowpack, with expansive mountain and ocean inlet views at your fingertips. Helicopters, snow-cats, and a ski resort make for no down days in Girdwood; we are always skiing powder.
Trip Of A lifetime with all the details taken care of
With over 25 years of skiing with CPG, Kim takes care of all logistics from picking the ideal lead guide to dinner reservations. Groups are limited to 4 skiers with two guides. As your your tail guide, Kim ensures you are skiing the most suitable terrain for the ability of the group, whether you are looking for the steep spines Alaska is famous for or wide-open glacier fields with endless perfect powder.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Daily terrain progression allows skiers to build knowledge and confidence throughout the week. Expert skiers who have experience and are ready to go, will be in their own group taking on higher landings and steeper terrain as conditions permit. Skiers with less experience will take lower landings and ski wide-open glacier fields filled with perfect powder.
