Helicopter transportation will be provided by Bering Air, Inc., using the MD500. The MD500 is a safe and powerful helicopter that is well suited to heli-skiing operations. The old saying that “getting there is half the fun” certainly applies here. Depart right from the cabin for an awesome view of the arctic wilderness with a chance to spot bear, moose and musk oxen. In a few minutes you will be choosing a wide open slope or the next first descent to lay down some tracks.
Helicopters allow access to many square miles of untouched skiing. The MD500 is equipped with a front loading belly pod that easily holds skis and packs. As it has seats for only three passengers, you will have a low 2:1 skier/guide ratio. The passenger weight limit is 250lbs per person. Guides and pilots alike will have safety as our number one priority during your stay.
Bering Air has a long-standing reputation in Western Alaska as a quality air carrier with a superb safety record. They operate a large fleet of rotor wing as well as fixed-wing aircraft year round, and have been in business since 1979. You will be flying with professional pilots who make their living flying year-round in Alaska.
