Prepare for the Possibilities
Pioneering still exists in the Tordrillos. The size of our permit area dwarfs all other locations. Together, guides and guests explore the Alaska Range, one of the state’s largest and most geographically diverse, in search of heli skiing and boarding terrain that around every corner delivers a choice of massive glaciers, couloir-incised peaks and powder turns. Mt. McKinley descents are not permitted, though volcanic peaks Mt. Gerdine (11,258 feet) and Mt. Torbert (11,413 feet) offer some of the most outstanding heli terrain we have ever experienced, and we also have our eyes on the terrain surrounding the volcanoes.
Consistent snowfalls result in one of the deepest snow packs in the area, though it is also known for stable weather conditions and clearing trends, which mean ideal opportunities for the helicopter activities. As the most experienced operator guiding the Tordrillos, we continue to grow our expertise in the same way we always have–by finding our comfort level, then pushing it just a little further. A-star B3 helicopters, lodge-based ski planes, weather stations, fixed repeater sites, satellite phones, fuel depots, and GPS are the tools of our trade that allow us to continually find new areas of Alaska’s winter snowscape. We invite you to be part of the discovery.
