Petersburg Alaska

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 fantastic skiing options.

The Petersburg heli skiing season kicks off in November. Great early season heli skiing options are available in Petersburg as its far enough south in Alaska for ample daylight and moderate temperatures all winter long.   Petersburg trips are accessed via Alaska airlines jetliner flights to Petersburg, which is a hundred miles south of Juneau and 600 miles southeast of Anchorage.

In addition to Petersburg, Silverton Mountain Guides also specializes in customized completely unique heli ski trips to the Tordrillo Mountains, Talkeetna Mountains, Neacola Mountains, Valdez and additional areas. With our several million acres of terrain options and perhaps the largest permit allowance in North America you could literally jump into the helicopter and fly for hours if you wanted.  New areas of discovery are always at your fingertips.

Custom RV trips are another fantastic option which can maximize the potential to explore new zones.  We load up 6 RV’s grab the helicopter and hit the remote Alaskan roads exploring new areas not serviced with any developed lodging or dining.  It is a true pioneering adventure.

If these locations are still too tame for you, Silverton Mountain Guides has the logistical experience to put together professionally led global trips to the destination of your choice.

Silverton Mountain Guides is an equal opportunity provider and employer, operating on the Tongass National Forest under special use permit from the USDA Forest Service.
