My good friend Scott and I were lucky enough to find the crew from Points North for our 40th birthday trip. Approaching mid-life crisis, we needed something to challenge us and push the envelope a bit. Well…we found it! I’m now 54, and I look back on our trip to the Chugach regularly, with the fondest of memories. It challenged us in so many ways and it is, without question, one of the best trips of my life. The Points North Team is absolutely incredible and made sure that we were safe at every turn, while experiencing some of the best terrain on earth. THANK YOU!!

Incredible Heli & AK Experience

Mark
26/03/2022
PNH is comprised of dedicated and knowledgeable guides, pilots and crew members, most of which have been there over a decade. Their credibility is obvious the second you land.

We arrived in the midst of a huge storm that put 4+ feet of new in the zone that was followed by 3 consecutive clear fly days then 3 consecutive 'down' days. Don't worry about down days, there's plenty to do. You can hit up Mt. Eyak, kayak, tour, hike, sauna, jump in the water or go into town which has a nice café, bars and a great little museum. The meals are incredible, they handle every type of dietary restriction, and it's BYOB from the nearby liquor store. The lodge is quiet, nice and clean with decent WiFi.

Three main things to know about Heli skiing that is important to know before signing up: 1) Weather and snow conditions dictate where you can go, so you may not get to the steeps 2) First timers ability will be observed to see what you can handle, so don't expect the goods right out of the gate 3) You will be on terrain suitable to the lowest ability member in your group, so the best option is to sign up with three others at your level. As a single, I really appreciated PNH putting me in an appropriate group.

Bottom line, don't wait, sign up. You will end up like the majority of people that go to PNH in that will sign up for more. See our video here

PNH-Life long memories and friends

Ryan Mulcahy
26/02/2022
Far and above one the best weeks of my life. Flash backs to this experience nearly daily . Kevin and Jess have build world class operation and platform on every level. Beyond the epic heli skiing I have made some life long friends, connections and networking.

I was in British Columbia and Alberta for about 10 days skiing at various resorts, side country lines, and touring off Rogers pass. I was at the bar after skiing at sunshine Village, and I just so happen to walk by and see a guy with a PNH hat on. I naturally went and talked to him, turns out it’s an old friend of Jess and Kevin.
We got to talking and turns out we have other mutual friends! We exchange contact, and then met up in Revelstoke BC for a ski touring and skied some absolutely amazing lines in cold smoke powder and stable conditions. He really knew this area well and I was grateful to link up with him and have a solid ski partner. It really made my trip in so many ways, and it all started with a connection from the PNH network! Thank you guys so much for all that you do for the skiing world in North America. Even after the heli a trip is over you’re still enabling good times! See our video here

Every Day is the Best Day of Your Life

Sally Marcus
21/07/2021
What we had dreamed would be a once in a lifetime trip might now need to happen every year. I am not exaggerating when I say that every day I spent at PNH was the best day of my life. They just kept getting better! My (now) husband and I decided kind of on a whim that we wanted to get married and everyone went above and beyond to make sure that we were able to run courthouse errands and town and to make our little ceremony in the zone the most amazing experience of our lives.

The skiing, the people, the guides, the sauna, the adventures, it was all so perfect. I knew that the skiing would be amazing, but I was not expecting how quickly all of the people around me would feel like family and how truly at home I would feel at the lodge. This was by far the most extravagant trip we have been on and we've been scheming since we left how we'll be able to make it work again year after year. See our video here

BUCKET LIST - CHECK!

17/04/2021
"The Pilots"
I had the good fortune to be a part of an 8 person party at PNH in March 2021. We were a group of mostly airline pilot friends who experienced with me one of my lifetime goals. We had blue bird weather and although we didn't expect to get more than a couple days due to weather, and although the guides seemed a little worried about scarce powder, we ended up crushing it with 4... YES 4... epic days. It just kept getting better and better culminating in THE BEST OF EVERYTHING - weather, terrain, snow and friendship. We had an experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend PNH and it's guides to anyone looking for an eye-popping, jaw-dropping crazy gorgeous Heli experience. See our video here

Big Mountain Slaying

01/04/2021
Had an incredible experience at PNH. There is a reason they are the industry leader of Alaskan Heliskiing. We arrived on 3/20/21 and for year of covid complicating all things, they did a great job of making sure that everyone was safe and provided helpful information to mange the complexities of travel.
It is a bigger operation than most with the ability to fly 3 birds, this give you the best opportunity to continually do laps without having to wait for a Heli in the field. We were partnered up with Aaron D. who was an incredible guide, not only in the filed but at the lodge as well. He ate breakfast and dinner with us every day and provided great information for weather, terrain or what to do on a down day.
We hit a dry window of weather that was great for flying, but no new snow. That didn't matter because we were able to tap into all of the stashes and get fresh lines for 3+days of riding. Aaron was incredible at communicating in the field and put us on some of the most incredible lines I have ever done. We rode everything from huge glaciated fields with blue icebergs sticking out, to incredibly steep 2000' couloirs. The best of all is that its a family run business and you feel part of the family. they are looking out for your safety and making sure that you have a great time.
I loved every minute of it and can't wait to go back. See our video here

I think I have only written 2 or 3 reviews ever for anything but Points North and the trip we had is deserving of my time to share my experience. For my son's high school graduation trip we decided to go heli-skiing. After basically having the end of his junior year and all of his senior year get canceled because of Covid we wanted to do something incredible and Points North fulfilled every dream we could imagine. We are good advanced Colorado skiers but not expert by any means. Jessica gave us great advice in preparation as this was our first heli-rodeo. From start to finish they made everything easy (pickup at the airport, gear, food, logistics, training, etc). We were paired up with our group and assigned our favorite guide ever, Jason. The week started with snow so we logged a day at Mount Eyak and had a blast. Our guide was seriously the best. An expert at what he does, Jason was an all around good guy that wanted us to experience as much as possible while we were there. We felt safe as he was experienced and took our safety and the conditions seriously. He took us on a kayak trip while we were waiting for the weather to break. We were fortunate and had blue bird days of skiing Tuesday afternoon through Friday. Unbelievable is an understatement. We skied the coolest stuff. Jason kept us safe but also pushed us as well, skiing terrain I never thought we could handle. The lodge was super clean and comfortable with amazing views. Meals were outstanding and it was just fun to hang out and eat there together in the lodge listening to glory stories of the day. The owners are awesome and genuinely want you to have a great time. We felt that our skiing options were limitless; never seeing any other operations which is a real advantage for their location as they are the only show around for that whole area of the Chugach. For a father/son senior trip we could not have picked better. Thank you PNH! See our video here

    Wow. I had wanted to ride in Alaska for years, after growing up watching videos of all my snow heroes dropping lines surrounded by fluffy spray. So I was expecting all of that. And PNH didn’t disappoint. What I wasn’t expecting was the beauty, tranquility and vastness. The connection I would make with my guide. Or the number of friends I would make over the week. The week was life affirming and I cannot recommend spending a week with PNH highly enough. See our video here

      I’ve come up to PNH two years and simply put, it is fantastic! Great vibe that starts at the top with Quinner and Jess; just a bunch of genuine, like-minded people who want to ride the best terrain on the planet. It’s no surprise why they have such a high client return rate and low guide turnover. Plus, the new terrain they have access to is phenomenal! If you are fortunate enough to get up to Alaska, I’d highly recommend PNH…they are the best! See our video here

        I cannot speak highly enough about the experience I had PNH. Kevin and Jessica are some of the nicest and most dedicated people I’ve ever met. Their goal is to make sure you have the best days you’ve ever experienced on your skis or snowboard, and they definitely hit that mark for me. The focus is on terrain choice and snow quality .vs powder harvesting and super posh accommodations. I really appreciate that. The staff is also extremely educated and super fun to hang out with after the heli is shut down for the day. You just want to support these people after being around them. I’ll be back every season from now on! See our video here
