Points North

Operation Overview

Points North Heli is the only heli-skiing operation utilizing the eastern side of the Chugach Mountains. The past two decades, the Chugach Range has proven to be the premier destination for helicopter skiing. Our base location in Cordova is 40 miles from Valdez and allows us to provide you with a ‘private’ playground in our backyard, conveniently accessed by Points North Heli. We cater to the intermediate level recreational skier/snowboarder to the world-class athlete.

Terrain Overview

With over 1,500 square skiable miles available out the front door, there is more terrain than one could ski or ride in a lifetime.

The Bottom Line

PNH has sold out 12 of our 16 years in business with three beautiful A-Star helicopters, and an 85 percent client return rate. We have unparalleled terrain and are incredibly proud and thankful for our amazing guides and crew who make PNH a very special place.
