Alaska Heli Skiing

Come 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 Heli Skiing Experience! From the moment you get to Valdez until you leave, you will experience the best of Alaska.  Black Ops Valdez is 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 Eurocopter A-Star B-Series 350 aircraft (Astar B3) 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. Our heli packages allow for the ultimate freedom, allowing you to help make decisions on how your heli time is spent. Whether it’s flying out deep for some un-ridden peaks, lapping the classic runs close to home, or finding some better weather, it’s up to you. We won’t make vertical foot or run guarantees. Bottom-line, you are paying for the helicopter, and with our Hobbs time program, you will always know where your money is spent.

We can fit you into a group if you are looking to come alone, or you can put your own group together. Ideally, groups of 4, 8, 12, or 16 with like skiing abilities are preferred. The more honest you are with your ability before you get here, the better your experience will be!

Top off your heli experience with the finest lodging available in Valdez, Robe Lake Lodge! Overlooking Robe Lake, between Valdez and Thompson Pass, we are perfectly located for flying a variety of terrain. We offer gourmet dinners featuring Alaskan style cuisine. Enjoy the hot tub or sauna cabin after the best day of skiing in your life…this is unlike anything else here…a true Alaskan Experience!
