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, which is conveniently accessed only by PNH. We allow for you to ski unlimited vertical during your days in the zone and we cater to all levels of skiers and snowboarders.


Terrain Overview

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

The Bottom Line

PNH has been sold out 13 of our 18 years in business with 3 beautiful A-Star helicopters, and an 85 percent client return rate, year after year.
