Alaska Backcountry Guides

Based in Valdez in Alaska, Alaska Backcountry Guides offer guided heli skiing in Alaska's vast & impressive Chugach mountains.

The vast glaciers, massive peaks, record breaking snowfall, and deep powder, make Valdez the premier heli ski and heli snowboard destination of the world. The Chugach Mountains have a wide range of terrain, and our trips can be catered to intermediates, experts, and professionals.

Alaska Backcountry Guides Packages

Alaska Backcountry Guides provides a best in class heli ski and snowboard program. They operate small groups (max. 4 guests), with at most 2 groups per A-Star helicopter. This allows for a tailored & intimate experience that is incomparable to other operators.

Their packages are fully inclusive (helicopter, ground transportation, lodging, & food), just book your flight and they take care of the rest!

Where is Alaska Backcountry Guides Located?

Alaska Backcountry Guides are based at the Valdez Airport, just minutes outside of the town of Valdez. They have a private hangar, pro-shop retail store, and a guest locker room with gear drying facilities.

Your base would be in the town of Valdez and you would commute each fly-day to the airport.
 
To access Valdeze, you will arrive/depart from Anchorage (ANC) airport.

ABG charters a private plane, exclusively for its guests, to fly roundtrip from Anchorage to Valdez. There is an additional fee for a round trip flight. The flight leaves at approximately 3:30p from Anchorage each Saturday, and returns from Valdez to Anchorage by 5pm each Saturday with the departing guests.

Please inquire directly to book your seat. Should you prefer to fly to Valdez via helicopter, they are happy to arrange a private flight from Anchorage (~1hr). The Valdez airport is also open to private planes.

If you would rather drive, Valdez is ~5 hours from Anchorage.
