Northern Chugach / Alyeska Girdwood

SINGLE DAY OPTIONS: Single days are available from our Seward location (1.15 hour drive from Alyeska). Seward Alaska heli skiing

The 2023 6 Day Northern Chugach Package is only $8,890 making it a fantastic value in Alaska heli skiing. Trips are typically based from our Alyeska Girdwood base. This Silverton Mountain Guides Alaska Heli Skiing trip includes:

  1. Five hours of base heli time*(per group of 4 riders). The plan is to ski as much as possible each day with groups on average getting 10-18+ runs on good days (each run is typically between 2,500-5,000 of vertical) $999 per person for each additional flight hour above the 5 hours included with your Package.
  2. No more than three groups using the helicopter. This means no waiting and fast paced skiing.
  3. Mobility is unique to SMG’s operations and the critical key to obtaining the best weather and snow conditions.  SMG will select the location to base the weeklong trip prior to your arrival, and SMG concierge service will assist with organizing your lodging and dining based on the needs of the group (daily lunch is included, lodging and dining not included).

*Helicopter time is measured in Hobbs hours (actual time on throttle or in flight). 1 hour of Hobbs can provide for a substantial amount of actual skiing as it only takes a few minutes of flight time to get from the bottom of a run up to a peak etc. You get to ski as many runs as possible within the 5 hours.


At the end of the 6 day trip the skiers & boarders will be returned to Anchorage at approximately 8pm on Friday their final day of skiing.

This private style heli ski trip restricts the amount of participants to a maximum of 3 groups of skiers / boarders using the helicopter at one time providing for maximum vertical. There are opportunities for clients to come as their own group of 4 or as singles, doubles etc.

Due to the limited amount of available spaces and extreme interest in this epic trip, spots fill up very quickly. Price subject to change at any time until booked.
