Alaska Ultimate Heli Trip Dates 2012

06/11/2011

Word continues to spread of our unique Alaska heli skiing and snowboarding program. The special earlybird pricing is available for a limtied time at only $5,890…

If you want to ride unlimited vertical on the best AK lines (but are afraid of getting stuck in a slower paced heli group), and are looking for the most favorable weather this is the trip for you. Located only 45 minutes from Anchorage you won’t need to book an extra flight, ferry, or rent a car saving you precious time and money.

We pre-screen all the clients in advance of the trip allowing well matched groups to position themselves to ski amazing AK lines (when the snow stability allows etc). Each client must complete a phone interview, OR either ski in Silverton first, know one of our guides who can vouch for your skiing/boarding, or have a friend who has ridden with us who knows your ability level to make sure we can provide the best possible experience in regards to grouping. You don’t have to be a pro, but this trip is for those who love to ski/board with passion. It is the only way to ride the best lines and find the most favorable weather regardless of if you have your own group of 4 or come as a single or double etc.

Silverton Mountain Guides is the only Alaska operation that provides two guides for each group for additional safety. Two guides allows longer pitches to be ridden, a faster pace, and opens options to ride lines you would not think of stepping to with just a single guide. If you only have one guide with you and you can’t maintain visual or verbal contact with your guide the entire time, you have two choices. 1) Ski shorter pitches to maintain contact with your guide. 2) Compromise safety.

We prefer to ride with two guides to enhance safety and your skiing opportunities.
