Heli-Skiing the Chugach Range, Alaska
More than 2,000 square miles of skiable terrain on the southeastern edge of the Chugach Range rise from Points North Heli-Adventures’ back door, and their guests have it all to themselves. Wake up on a bluebird day and come to your senses atop remote peaks with 360-degree vistas, then drop into the best untapped, powdery run of your life—again and again. After a day of 8-12 runs, head back to Cordova—accessible only by ferry or plane—and PNH’s Orca Adventure Lodge for a steaming wood sauna and fresh-caught Copper River salmon. Sleep and repeat. (7 nights, $5,275, includes meals, lodging, avalanche gear, and 4 hours flight time; alaskaheliski.com)
