THE RIGHT TOOL
FOR THE JOB
Valdez Heli-Ski Guides flies Eurocopter A-Star B2 helicopters for all of our operations. This powerful helicopter has an excellent safety record and is the best aircraft available for mountain flying. In fact, an A-Star recently set the high altitude landing record when it touched down on Mount Everest.
One of the first things you'll notice about flying in the Eurocopter A-Star B2 is that there isn't a bad seat in the house. The cockpit is configured so everyone has a great view. So sit back and enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and get a bird’s-eye view of your next run.
SAFETY IS MORE
THAN A SLOGAN
VHSG’s contracted helicopter company, Northstar Trekking, is one of the finest helicopter operators in North America. Just like VHSG, Northstar’s top priority is safety; you can rest assured that the pilot in the front seat is the best at technical mountain flying. And with on-site mechanics, routine maintenance is always thorough and efficient.
Our pilots are career professionals, mountain-flying specialists and an integral part of the VHSG team. They are involved in the VHSG pre-season training and are active participants in our daily guide meetings, weather briefings, and operational procedures.
