Ski Alaska with Smart Mountain Guides 

Alaska Spring Skiing

Due to the closed border between the US and Europe, we have decided to return to our old ski guiding home of Alaska this spring.  We are planning on being there in April and possibly part of March for heli-skiing and ski touring.  We hope to ski there with many of you who won’t be able to make it to the Alps this winter.

Why Alaska?  We spent many seasons guiding heli-skiing and ski touring in Alaska and it is one of our favorite places to ski anywhere in the world.  Alaska is a location that Americans will likely be able to reach for a ski trip this winter.  Endless perfect ski mountains as far as the eye can see.  Skiing Alaska is a must for every skier.


Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is the place for the true Alaskan experience.  TML lodge is a 40-minute flight from Anchorage in the Alaskan backcountry.  The remote luxury lodge is surrounded by over 1 million acres of heli-ski terrain.  The spectacular glaciated peaks offer everything from steep couloirs, to wide-open faces, to scenic glacier runs.

If you are looking to heil ski in another part of Alaska we also offer heli-ski weeks in Girdwood and Valdez.  Girdwood has the advantage of a fun town and Alyeska ski resort.  Valdez is where it all started with its endless classic steep descents.


Ski Touring

Valdez Alaska, in the heart of the Chugach Mountains, is one of the best locations for day touring anywhere.  Above the town of Valdez, the road over Thompson Pass gives easy access to countless classic ski tours and descents.  Python, Cherry Couloir, Stairway, Diamond, Cracked Ice, and Berlin Wall to name a few. These are some of the names from the early ski films in Valdez.  All these descents are easily accessed ski touring from the road on Thompson Pass.
