Valdez Alaska Ski Guiding
If you’re a skier you have dreamed of skiing in the Chugach. Every year in the ski movies you see the Chugach mountains and some of the best skiing in the world. Snow sticks to every thing. The Chugach mountains of Alaska hold some of the best ski terrain any where and will definitely blow your mind in person.
Based out of Valdez, in Prince William Sound, we offer six days of ski touring around the world famous Thompson Pass…aka Skiers Mecca! Our guides will customize a world class ski experience to fit your ability. We can take you on the big steep lines you have drooled over on the ski movies or wide open moderate powder fields. There is also an option to hire a day or two of Heli-Skiing. We choose the best weather days and conditions for this add on to the trip and ski tour the rest of the time. This is a trip not to be missed.
