Experience First Class
Alaska Heli Skiing 

With Black Ops Valdez

Black Ops Valdez is the only operation of its kind. We specialize in the true Alaska ALL INCLUSIVE Heli Skiing Experience! From the moment you get to Valdez until you leave, you will experience the best of Alaska. 

Black Ops Valdez has a team of highly skilled and trained Valdez heli-ski guide veterans, many of which have guided here for over a decade....or two. We operate Airbus/Eurocopter A-Star B-Series 350/H-125 aircraft and have 16 maximum clients at any one time, or four groups of four, each with a guide. This ensures that your experience is a personal one and eliminates waiting for the helicopter between runs.

We offer flight time, Hobbs time, packages only. Hobbs time is kept by a meter on the dash of the aircraft and turns anytime the pilot pulls pitch on the main rotor blades...this basically happens when the aircraft is flown in sustained level flight (to and from the skiing) anytime the aircraft is flown up in elevation (flying from the pickup to the top of the next run), or stabilizing the aircraft on a tricky landing. In the field, you pay to fly up, what you want to ski down.

You will feel relaxed in our comfortable beds, lounging on the sofa, or soaking in the panoramic views.

Heli-skiing clients will also enjoy gourmet dinners including steak and fresh local seafood prepared by our private chef.

An amazing trip, epic snow, and a team that will deliver on your Heli trip expectations! 

Our guide Brian was top notch, and the pilot amazed. They found the best lines and snow, even with some heart pounding drop offs. Can't wait to go back!

TOP NOTCH heli ski guides

Truly the best of the best - veteran big line skiers and world class athletes who spend time with you to make sure you feel completely comfortable with each line before skiing it. We were dropped onto the landing zone, met by killer powder and then took a sunset run onto a glacier and then swept back to base for a cheers and welcome back.

There is a reason that people come to Black Ops Valdez year after year and new clients seek them out ... they are truly THE BEST!
