    PNH is an all encompassing company. From the owners to the guides and especially the kitchen staff (who keep you fed and fat). It really does do it all.

    And the skiing/riding?? Truly the best in the world. If you want it, PNH will give it to you!

    There is something for everyone here. You don’t have to be a pro, you just have to be able to navigate the chest deep powder and the guides will do the rest for you. Making sure that you come home safely is their number one priority.

    As Quinner says “This is disneyland on steroids”…

    DO IT!! You wont regret it…

    I’m going again in 2011. This will be my 4th year of tearin’ up the Chugach…

    My first time heli skiing and Kevin and Jessica took real good care of this 61 year old kid. The skiing was a dream come true, the accommodations superb, the pricing fair and the camaraderie beyond compare.

    Do it before you get any older!

    I skied with Points North in February 2011. There are a few heliski companies operating in Alaska, but these guys are the only ones operating from Cordova and have a vast area to themselves in the Chugach mountains. They run the business from a converted salmon cannery in Prince William Sound, a short drive from Cordova and its airport.

    When I was there it was early in their season. They don’t start skiing until the end of February and continue into April. For the week preceding my week of skiing, there had been high winds and only a single snow fall. There was no snow for the entire week (or the week after evidently). This is unusual and I heard from the guides and other return skiers that it is more common to be inundated with snow and have a few no fly days followed by unbelievable skiing in dry, deep snow. During my week there was only one no fly day, due to high winds. Every day was bluebird. That meant a lot of flying time, but the conditions were pretty challenging. Terrain that would be epic with good snow was difficult to negotiate with unpredictable crust and ice.

    That sounds disappointing, but it definitely wasn’t. The Chugach mountains are stunning. Most of the skiing we did was runs in the alpine into glacier valleys above the tree line. From the peaks there are mountains stretching into the distance as far as you can see. Much of the skiing is in other worldly settings, like skiing on an alien planet.

    There is definitely the terrain here to suit the most hard core extreme skier and the opportunity to ski it with Points North, but there was no way we could push it in the snow conditions we had. As it was, the one or two “no fall” slopes we skied were challenging enough for me! I think, that with the usual snow this location gets, it would be one of the best ski destinations in the world and even with poor snow, it is still an amazing week of skiing.

    The lodge lies in Prince William Sound and the local waters are full of sea otters. There are huge eagles in the woods above the water front road and moose as well. Staying here, for this first time visitor to Alaska, felt like being in the middle of a wildlife documentary. Cordova is not exactly a hotbed ski town, but the locals are interesting to talk to and friendly. The town was badly affected by the Exxon Valdez disaster and has an interesting history.

    This is a place to ski in the tracks of some skiing greats. It is a favourite haunt of Warren Miller and his crew. Jessica and Kevin are both well known skiers as are several of their guides. This place attracts serious skiers and boarders from everywhere and most of the other clients were much better skiers than me!

    Despite these credentials the rates for PNH are very competitive compared to heliskiing at some other North American destinations. Getting to and from Cordova is pretty easy from North America or Canada. This is definitely one destination to put on the skiing bucket list.
