All Alaska heli skiing guests or summer visitors will arrive and depart through Anchorage International Airport, a 10 minute drive to downtown Anchorage.

Summer Guests

Guests visiting in the summer are met by our staff on the morning of their departure at any of the downtown Anchorage hotels (or nearby location) and brought to float plane on Lake Hood (10 minute drive) to depart for the lodge.

For hotels, we recommend the Hotel Captain Cook, Lakefront Anchorage, or the Marriott Downtown Anchorage.

If you have extra time while in Anchorage, check out the Anchorage Museum, a large art, history, ethnography, ecology and science museum located in downtown Anchorage.

Winter Guests

Guests arriving into Anchorage will take an arranged shuttle to the Hotel Captain Cook, included in the winter package. The Cook has long been the finest hotel in Alaska. Located in the heart of Anchorage, guests will enjoy three in house restaurants that serve the best that Alaska has to offer. Just off the property, in downtown Anchorage, you will find great sushi bars, live fish bars and great nightlife.

For those who would like to warm up to the Alaska ski experience. Take a 45-minute drive south on the Seward highway, to Alyeska Resort. This 4-diamond resort offers great skiing and incredible slope side accommodations. Enjoy an incredible dining experience at the 7 glaciers restaurant. Take the tram up to the mountain station and check out the wines from across the world and enjoy some of the best food in all of Alaska. The Sitz is the local bar at the bottom of the mountain. They serve great beers and wine, with local Alaskan entertainment and the occasional touring act. One thing for certain… a couple of days in Girdwood at the resort will get you off on the good foot.

If you have the desire to heli ski while in Girdwood, let us know. We can arrange heli skiing and cat skiing for you while you are in the area with Chugach Powder Guides. This operation offers some of the best terrain the Chugach has to offer. Give it a try and you will be prepared for anything in the Tordrillos.
