TRAVEL TO VALDEZ HELI-SKI GUIDES

 

GETTING TO VALDEZ

To start your Valdez Heli-Ski Guides adventure you must first get to the Anchorage International Airport, serviced by daily flights from several major U.S. cities.

Next, most of our clients fly to Valdez on a 35-minute shuttle flight available from Ravn Alaska.  The Saturday flight departs Anchorage at 5:05 p.m. and arrives in Valdez around 5:50 p.m. A VHSG representative will meet you here for transport to the Tsaina Lodge. Your departure from Valdez the following Saturday will be on the same flight, departing at 6:10 p.m. and arriving in Anchorage at 6:55 p.m. Other Ravn Alaska flights are available but these work best with your VHSG heli-ski itinerary.

There are two other options for getting to Valdez, allowing you to see a little more of Alaska if you can allocate the time in your travel schedule. The Glenn and Richardson highways are well maintained year-round and the five-hour drive from Anchorage to the Tsaina Lodge around the north side of the Chugach Mountains is stunning. (All major rental car companies are available at the Anchorage Airport.) From mid- to late-April, you can also board the high-speed ferry just 40 miles south of Anchorage for a four-hour sailing across Prince William Sound.

But no matter how you get here, you need to be in Valdez by 6 p.m. or at the Tsaina Lodge by 6:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of your itinerary for our evening orientation with drinks and appetizers.

LODGING IN ANCHORAGE

You may choose to arrive in Alaska a day or two prior to your heli-ski adventure. If you’re staying in Anchorage, VHSG recommends the Crowne Plaza Anchorage- Midtown, a full service hotel located just minutes from the Anchorage airport. It offers excellent dining options, both at the hotel and nearby, high-speed internet, an athletic club, and a complimentary business center
