Alaska Rendezvous Heli Guides provides premiere heli-skiing experiences in Thompson Pass and the Chugach Range. Our Rendezvous Lodge is located farther to the north than many of the other heli ski operators in Valdez; putting our guests closer to the Blue Hole of Thompson Pass. Since storms often clear from the north, we can take advantage of more skiable days than anywhere else in the region.
Whether you are a boarder or skier, our typical heli skiing day will include 20,000 to 30,000 of vertical feet. Our staff of experienced heli ski guides will take you on peaks with elevations up to 6,800 feet, and descents up to 5,000 feet vertical. The scale and expanse of terrain, combined with the massive amount of annual snowfall (30-80 feet per year) cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world.
We offer world-class location and facilities for heli skiing in Alaska, and we can access three distinct zones with over 3,500 square miles of skiable terrain. Valdez is home to the original big mountain experience, and our heli ski guides and pilots bring vast experience and knowledge to make your trip safe, fun and memorable. To put it simply, we have more terrain, taller mountains and better weather than other heli-skiing operations in Alaska.
