Seward & Petersburg Coastal Fjords

Seward Alaska heli skiing is an incredibly unique heli experience.  Seward is perhaps the most scenic location of any heli ski destination with coastal fjords located directly adjacent to the ski terrain and is very near the Kenai Fjords National Park.  The deep  snow tends to bury the mountains and develop steep spines that are located very close to town.  It has a different snow climate from the Northern Chugach, and some stellar tree skiing in addition to amazing alpine terrain.  When the weather rolls in the trees can provide fantastic skiing options with long runs that can take you directly to the ocean.  The flights to the ski terrain are generally short allowing a tremendous amount of terrain to be accessed.  Whale and wildlife sightings are common.

Petersburg Alaska heli skiing is the Silverton Mountain Guides base of operations in Southeast Alaska.  With nearly 1 million acres of USFS permit terrain near Petersburg the sky is literally the limit.  Silverton Mountain Guides is the only permitted heli ski operator in this region.  SE Alaska has a different snow climate from the Northern Chugach, and some stellar tree skiing in addition to amazing alpine terrain.  When the weather rolls in the trees can provide stellar skiing options.
