With our À La Carte program, you are paying for the helicopter flight time and the guides to show you the best of the best in Alaska’s Chugach Mountains. You will take care of your own lodging, food, and ground transportation. This program requires a group of five. Note that if you book with less than 5 people, other guests may book any open seats (a deposit is required to confirm all seats).
New for 2022! We are thrilled to offer our guests heli-skiing access to the vast, remote, stunning Chugach National Forest terrain under a Special Use Permit awarded to Pulseline through the Cordova Ranger District. Our guests will experience what is widely considered the finest skiing and snowboarding terrain in the world!
Reserve your seat on the helicopter to access Earth’s most stunning remote big mountain skiing and snowboarding terrain in Alaska’s legendary Chugach Mountains surrounding Valdez.
Pulseline operates out of the Valdez Pioneer Field airport just minutes from historic Valdez, Alaska. We have access to terrain in nearly every direction with flexibility to choose the best terrain based on weather and snow conditions, and group ability and objectives.
The Chugach Mountains surrounding Valdez and Prince William Sound are the snowiest, most glaciated mountains in Alaska. These mountains offer an excellent combination of diverse terrain, massive vertical, broad glaciation, and a consistently deep annual snowpack.
This unique glacially-chilled powder paradise is shielded from rain and warm temperatures that often wreak havoc on snow in other maritime climates. Thousands of square miles of glaciers and cold microclimates combined with massive winter storms barreling into the Chugach Range from the Gulf of Alaska contribute to immense snowfall and premium powder snow.
After heli-skiing in the Chugach Mountains you’ll quickly realize that nothing else compares.
