When the glaciers of the Juneau Icefield get a winter covering of snow that makes landing and hiking impractical we head even farther north to the Alaska gulf coast communities of Cordova and Valdez. Here the large amounts of snow received each year in the rugged and remote Chugach Range have made this area a world class heli-skiing destination.
For the last several years NorthStar has flown for Points North Heli Adventures in Cordova, Alaska and for Valdez Heli Ski Guides in Valdez, Alaska. Recently we also partnered with Alaska Backcountry Adventures in Valdez, Alaska. These areas have been the playgrounds for recreational, extreme and Olympic class skiers and snowboarders. NorthStar, working with Points North, has been featured in several Warren Miller ski movies.
