With our private charters you book the use of a helicopter with your own group of friends  (typically 8 people or two loads). Only your group will use that helicopter. Our packages allow for 14 hours** of flying time tracked by the ships Hobbs meter (actual flying time, not clock time). This package allows you to work with your guides to better chose the terrain, schedule, and pace to better deliver the experience you are looking for.

no better way

When you charter a private helicopter with Valdez Heli-Ski Guides, you are guaranteed the best heli-skiing experience possible in the Chugach. There is simply no better way to heli-ski the Chugach than with a group of friends who have the freedom, flexibility and unlimited options of a private ship. Do you want to ski the steeps all day or just have fun in the powder? The choice is yours. Our private ship packages include one A-Star helicopter and two guides

With more than 2,500 square miles to ski and ride, you will feel like a modern-day explorer discovering run after run of untracked Chugach powder. Weather and snow conditions permitting, we travel deep into the eastern Chugach to access rarely visited runs, the most exotic runs we can offer. In conjunction with our experienced guide staff, this exciting terrain deep in the Chugach welcomes national and international ski guides and their clients to Valdez Heli-Ski Guides year after year. To maximize safety, all private parties must be accompanied by at least two VHSG ski guides. Accordingly, the ideal private party is made up of 8 guests (A-stars can carry 4 guests and one guide.) Come explore with us!


** On a private package you will be charged by the helicopter’s "Hobbs" meter. Basically this means that the clock is activated every time the pilot takes off, flies, hovers, lands, or stabilizes the ship on a technical landing. In our experience, private groups can average about five or six runs per Hobbs hour flown. Your actual efficiency may be higher or lower depending on weather conditions and horizontal distance traveled to your skiing area.
