Heli-skiing and heli-snowboarding is prevalent in Valdez because of the vast amount of snow this area receives each year. The majestic Chugach Mountains surround Valdez and help create the quintessential backcountry experience; most of which are accessible via helicopter, snowmachines and/or snow cats.
