Trip Description

Escape the crowds and access world class skiing & riding in the mountains surrounding Skagway

The historic town of Skagway, Alaska at the northern end of Alaska’s inside passage is surrounded by an extremely jagged, heavily glaciated, mountain landscape. The peaks surrounding town often leave guests in awe as their vertical rise straight from the ocean is unforgettable. The variety of terrain; from glacier cirques with a multitude of steep couloirs to open bowls and rolling powder runs make for world class skiing and riding. The combination of incredible skiing and the proximity to a helicopter base of operations make this area one of the best in North America for helicopter skiing.

Skagway, the jump off point for the gold fields of the Klondike, is rich in history from the era. With a local population of just over 1,000, town offers distinctive character and a quite, relaxing environment during downtime.

 

SKAGWAY: Skagway offers visitors an escape off the beaten path and the chance to discover world class heliski access nestled at the northernmost point of the Inside Passage. Commercial flights can be arranged to Juneau, with regular Cessna flight service and the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system available from Juneau to get you here.

LODGING & MEALS: We’ll arrange lodging in town for you and provide lunch with each day of heliskiing. Guests will be responsible for breakfast and dinner during their stay.

10K VERTICAL GUARANTEE: All Skagway heli packages include a 10,000′ vertical per day guarantee. We’ll maximize skiing during your stay and ensure your powder grin is ear to ear. We are often able to recoup lost vertical due to weather with additional ski time towards the end of your itinerary. If for some reason we aren’t able to meet our 10K/day vertical guarantee over the course of your trip with us, the following refund structure will apply:

– No fly day = 65% refund
– 0 – 2,000 ft short = 10% refund
– 2,000 – 4,000 ft short = 25% refund
– 4,000 – 6,000ft short = 35% refund
– 6,000 – 8,000ft short = 50 % refund

OUR GUIDES: Stellar Alaska Mountain Guides are professionals, putting a premium on our guests experience. Every trip draws on extensive guiding experience in Alaska, South America, Japan, and around the world. We are dedicated to creating an experience that exceeds guest’s expectations!

Reggie Crist competed in the ’92 Olympics and won gold medals in the X Games (02 & 05). His success as a competitor opened the door for filming with production companies such as Warren Miller and Teton Gravity Research. He has 20+ years of Alaskan Heli-ski experience and when he is not guiding up north, works as a lead guide for Sun Valley Heli. During the summer months he is a lead guide for Valle Nevado Heli in Chile. He works for Eddie Bauer and K2 designing, testing, and marketing their products. Working alongside Reggie, our team of guides all have 5+ years of guiding heli-skiing in Alaska.

We offer a variety of short stay and play packages ranging from 3 to 5 days.

During downtime guests can explore the historic downtown area, part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, enjoy a refreshing beer at the local brewery or take a walk out towards Yakutania Point for a stunning view down the fjord and an opportunity to see wildlife.

We encourage guests to factor an extra day or two into their visit to Skagway with the possibility to make up lost weather days on the tail end of their trip. Additional heli days can also be added on for a rate of $990/day.
