The H2O Guides Powder Assault Team truly accesses the goods in Alaska's Chugach Mountains surrounding Valdez in the northern Gulf of Alaska - the snowiest, most glaciated tract of coastal mountains on the planet! This is the highest level of big mountain freeride skiing and snowboarding. Get your opportunity to ski and ride runs in the Tasnuna, Woodworth, Pencil and Schwan Regions, among many others, where few humans will ever go and other operators are not permitted for heli skiing. Enjoy our classic lines, like The Hammer, Fu Kung Good, Don't Panic, Snow Cone, McCabe's, Ice King, Euphoria, Sharpies, Clam Shell, Miller Time, and Papa Hotel (to start). We have hundreds more Landing Zones and runs along with plenty of first descents that are just waiting for the right day and time.
Choose from all-inclusive, semi-inclusive, and basic Alaska heli-skiing packages with rustic waterfront lodging and Alaskan cuisine in historic Valdez a.k.a Snow Capital USA.
Charter your own Astar helicopter with your own guides and pilot to access unrivaled terrain and traverse 4,000 square miles of the Chugach Mountains.
Get the best combination of deep snow, geographic location, exclusive terrain, microclimates, safety protocol, and guide experience and knowledge.
H2O Guides operates under special use permits from the Chugach National Forest, Bureau of Land Management, and Alaska State Parks
