1 Day Heli Skiing

Our 1 day heli skiing option is designed for clients that live in town or regionally and can fly standby and take advantage of an open seat with very short notice. This is not a truly reliable way to heliski with us, as it is based on availability and if we can pair you with an existing group. For reference, an average day of heliskiing is about 7 runs. Locals, please call or email us first to recieve a discount code for these seats. If you are from the Yukon or Alaska and hold identification or a mailing address in these areas, we will provide you with a code for a discount on your booking.

Cat Skiing

Cat skiing is the best kept secret in Haines. Especially on weather days when the heli might not be able to fly. We have over a 3,800 feet (1200 meters) of vertical relief serviced by the cat. If you are willing to hike another 500 vertical, you can access one of Alaska Heliskiing's core runs: Old Faithful. A typical day of cat skiing will net you about 12,000 vertical feet.

Multi-Day Plane Skiing Adventures

Our multi-day plane skiing adventures give you and your friends to opportunity to fly deep into the Chilkat Mountains to rip zones that helicopters are not permitted to fly in. Fly Drake Adventures will fly you into the zone and your SEABA guide will help you set up base camp. For the next several days, hike and ski some of the most amazing terrain in the world with your dedicated guide and emergency rescue support.

Overnight Guided Touring and Skiing

SEABA's new offering is close to Haines, Alaska, and has over 3,000 acres of readily available ski and split board touring right outside the shelter's doors. We can arrange drop off and pick up to our touring shelter for this experience.

We staff our backcountry shelter with qualified guides, kitchen and all the overnight equipment so that you can experience the Alaskan backcountry, with a few added comforts. Our guides will teach you about route finding in the mountains, winter camping techniques, tips on using backcountry gear efficiently, and the do's and don'ts of winter travel. Supported by Winter Safety Institute, we will educate you so that you can navigate and travel more safely and efficiently though avalanche terrain, and in some cases glaciated terrain.

Snowmobiling

Explore the Chilkat mountains and river valleys on one of our mountain sleds. With virtually endless terrain to explore this is some of the best sled accessed terrain on earth.
