Forget the glitz and glam of Aspen and head for the vast wilderness of Alaska for your next ski adventure. With over two million acres of terrain and an average annual snowfall of more than 600 inches, this is the real skier’s mecca. With the help of a trusty AStar AS-350 helicopter, you will be whisked to your next powder run faster than you can say “I hate lift lines”. There is so much available terrain that you can be blessed with fresh tracks on each descent.

A common misconception is that an adventure like this is limited only to those with expert levels of ability. Incredibly, the terrain is accommodating and has something for everyone. There are open bowls, spine runs, low-angle powder, long glacier runs and steep faces. Vertical descents can range from 1000 feet to 4500 feet or more, all of which is above the tree line making for spectacular views at every turn.

At the end of the day, relax in the comfort of a rustic lodge nestled in the mountains. Equipped with modern amenities, you can soak in the outdoor hot tub, opt for massage therapy or simply find your spot at the fully equipped bar. For those with any energy left, there’s the opportunity to Nordic ski on the nearby trails or cruise on a snow-bike. Whatever you choose, you will have the chance to view wildlife right on the property. On a clear night, you might even catch the beautiful Northern lights fill the sky. At this point, you might be asking yourself why you waited so long to take this magical trip!
