Chugach Powder Guides Private Heli Skiing

Particularly for seasoned heli skiers, the best heli ski experience is to go heli skiing in Alaska, and the ultimate AK heli ski experience is on a private charter helicopter trip!

The flexibility and range of skiing/snowboarding opportunities with a private charter offers guests an experience beyond what is possible with the standard Chugach Powder Guides packages. With private heliskiing, the terrain to be explored is mainly dictated by the snowpack, weather conditions and your whims, not by the riding ability or fitness of someone in the group that you don’t know.

The Chugach Powder Guides charter trips are based in the town of Girdwood (home of the Alyeska Resort), Seward or Palmer.

Girdwood trips have access to the incredibly varied and established local terrain, and also have the flexibility to push south to the Seward terrain or north to the Parmer terrain depending on conditions and your desires.

Seward based trips focus on skiing and water sports on the North Gulf Coast.

Palmer based trips have access to drier weather and expansive exploratory terrain.

Girdwood Private Charters
The premium offering of Chugach Powder Guides is a private charter trip focussed on skiing and exploring the best terrain and conditions available throughout Southcentral Alaska, including the renowned Girdwood tenure. These trips can include airplane support, additional guide support, and photography. In conjunction with CPG you can prioritise the mountain zones, skiing expectations, costs, and trip duration for your group.

Remote Private Charter
The Chugach Powder Guides remote private charter is an à la carte adventure with a focus on exploratory terrain outside of Girdwood (and doesn’t include access to the Girdwood tenure). Accommodation can be booked in Seward, Palmer or other areas at the last minute, to enable the ability to chase optimal weather and conditions.

The remote heli skiing safari is authentic Alaskan heli skiing at its roots, focussing on distant or unfrequented terrain and zones. Pack your spirit for adventure!

See the Chugach Powder Guides overview for information on the terrain, location, and benefits of heli skiing with CPG.

CPG Terms and Conditions

Special COVID-19 Conditions

In spite of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Girdwood remains one of the best places to ski in the world. While the circumstances posed by the pandemic are unique and unprecedented, we have carefully created our operating strategy for the upcoming season to best protect people and still do what we do best. In addition to safety measures and detailed planning, booking flexibility will be a key tool in making this possible. For the 2020-21 season, new bookings will be fully refundable until October 1st (excluding some payment methods). After October 1st, any cancellations or interruptions due to COVID-19 will be rolled forward as credit to the following season.

At CPG, we continue to thoughtfully consider our operating and sales strategies to mitigate the risks of COVID to our guests and community and still be able to provide a first-class trip this winter. To that end, we pledge to do everything reasonably possible and will expect the same of our guests and employees. The mountains will be as awe-inspiring as they have always been, and the snow will turn them into some of the best ski runs on earth. There will be some challenges around travel, and some changes to normal perks like nightlife and high fives; but, the core of what makes skiing in Alaska so special will still be there this year or whenever you're ready to come.


What you need to know before your heli-ski adventure with CPG We may be renowned the world over for our incredible heli-skiing terrain, but it's our attention to every detail of our guests' stay with us that truly sets us apart. We do everything we can to accommodate our guests' needs, changes, unforeseen mishaps and cancellations. Due the lead times required to effectively manage helicopter contracts and the costs associated with hospitality and guiding, cancellations are difficult to accommodate. We strongly recommend purchasing trip insurance.  

Payments and Deposits To book your reservation with Chugach Powder Guides we require a 25% deposit for Single Days, Packages and Charter reservations (90 days prior to your first ski date the remaining balance is due). The deposit and a signed tour participant contract is required to confirm your reservation. Failure to pay the final balance by the due date may result in the cancellation of your reservation. CPG accepts all major credit cards, wire transfers, Paypal and checks. Please contact our office for any information you need to make a payment.

Client / Participant Responsibilities

1) All clients and participants will be required to follow the safety policies and procedures of Chugach Powder Guides as well as the guides' instructions during activities.
2) All clients and participants will be required to sign a Participant Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement in favor of Chugach Powder Guides before departing on any trip or activity; and
3) each client or participant agrees and acknowledges when they sign up for Chugach Powder Guides activities that they have significant responsibility for their own safety and agree they are ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE for their own safety during participation in an activity.

Cancellation Policy

For customer cancellations, CPG requires written notice of cancellation via certified mail or confirmed email. 4-day semi-private and all private charter trip deposits are non-refundable after October 1st. Helicopter ski day trip deposits are non-refundable inside of 2 weeks from your trip. Any refunds on Credit Cards will be subject to a 5% cancellation fee. Refunds for checks and wires will have no fee. After October 1st, any cancellations or interruptions due to COVID-19 will be rolled forward as a credit to the following season.

Refund Policy

4-day semi-private packages and all private charters are based on helicopter flight time (Hobbs). Day skiing trips are based on vertical feet skied. Refund Rates are subject to the terms specified in the customer contract. Refunds are only issued when you do not attain the minimum flight hour or vertical foot guarantee of your trip for the following reasons: CPG does not achieve the Hobbs or Vertical Feet due to inclement or unsafe flying weather, a helicopter mechanical issue, or extraordinary safety concerns as defined by CPG. No refunds are issued in part or in whole for unused days due to late arrival, early departure or any other reason. No refunds are issued for unsatisfactory weather or snow conditions. No refunds are issued for missed skiing due to skiing ability, fitness, equipment failure, or personal choice. If a skier becomes injured, ill or requests to leave the field prematurely for any reason, no refund will be issued.

Insurance: We Recommend It

We highly recommend that all of our guests purchase trip insurance, as well as medical and emergency evacuation insurance.
