The Chilkat Valley in Haines, Alaska is unique because it stretches across many miles of mountainous terrain. Heli-skiable terrain begins at saltwater and ends at the Canadian border 40 miles up valley. This creates 5 different micro climates in the region which provide many different heliskiing options for weather, snow, wind events, and avalanche conditions. This gives your guides the ability to find the goods consistently and the sun pops out somewhere just about every day.
Huge terrain and first descents are the rule when heliskiing in Haines. Come experience it for yourself.
