It’s definitely “one of those years” here in Alaska. As February approaches and the heli season gets closer (we start in AK on February 11). We’ve been having the best early season we can recall. The snow has been deep, dry and plentiful. The snowcat skiing has been “all time”. As always, our first week of the heli season is discounted. Right now, we’re holding the goods. It’s time to make a February powder plan and get up to AK. We are still able to offer 20% off on Alaska Airlines for those who book their travel before January 31.
Check out these great photos of recent snowcat skiing from guide, Henry Munter.
With the CPG snowcat area opening on Saturday, December 24, Henry Munter, Rob Durnell, Andy Ballou and the rest of the crew have been busily preparing to make our current gift of deep powder available to the public. From the footage Henry took yesterday, it looks like things are really shaping up nicely. The crew spent some serious hours in the area this fall with chainsaws improving the glades and making the tree runs better than they’ve ever been. You know what they say about all work and no play. Check out “Play Time” for Henry and the crew below. The early season conditions in Alaska are “All Time” right now. Snowcat starts this week and heli skiing begins February 12. There is still space in the early weeks and the first week of heli is discounted. Time to get some POW!

Ullr has been blessing AK with plenty of early season goodness. With over 120 inches since October 1, the Chugach is starting to look fat and Alyeska Resort is getting ready to open (Nov. 23).
Our Office Manager, Melanee Stiassny recently went ski touring in our snowcat area, confirming that things are looking really, really good! Check out these photos (pics by Thomas Bailey) from her tour. Let’s hear it for deep pow!
Kings and Corn 2011 is drawing to a close and it’s been one for the books. While we were concerned that the low winter snowfall might affect the Kings and Corn adventure this summer, we found that there was plenty of good, creamy corn to be had for all. The run of King Salmon has been steady and we’ve had good success in getting guests into the big fish. As always, our exploration of this vast region has continued and we’ve gone deep into the Alaska Range for an unforgettable good time. Check out some of the photos from the 2011 Kings and Corn adventure.
Mia and Jason joined us from Australia for some great pow in February. Check out the vid from their adventure. Thanks for coming you guys!
As you may have heard, at our operations in Alaska, we have joined forces with Go Pro to put cameras in the hands of our clients and turn them loose on the interweb machine. We’ve backed this up with a great contest. The best fully edited submission from a client will win a free heli ski trip next season! Check out this submission from John and Xavier! Thanks guys, and good luck!
