SMG (Silverton Mountain Guides) operates in a vast area of terrain spanning multiple Alaska mountain ranges, each offering unique weather patterns and minimal down days. With heli tree skiing and being based at Alyeska Ski Resort, you can ski powder typically every day of your trip.
At SMG you will find two guides for every group and the very best Astar B3E helicopter in the business. This modified helicopter with 1,000hp is exclusively outfitted for SMG heli skiing, distinguishing itself from older much less powerful machines commonly used in Alaska. SMG strategically chooses to operate with just only one helicopter per week, prioritizing a personalized guest experience with access to Chugach, Seward, Tordrillo, Neacola, and Valdez heli skiing. More helicopters creates competition for the best Alaska heli skiing so less is always more.
Based in Girdwood at Alyeska Ski Resort, SMG is the ideal location for a family ski vacation The Alaska Girdwood / Chugach terrain offers diverse options, including open faces, big bowls and of course classic AK spine runs. Anchorage International is just 35 min away and provides convenient direct flights and no additional connections are required.
