Weather Days….

No matter what anyone says or claims, the weather doesn’t always cooperate.  Alaska is a very rugged and unpredictable place.

Each and every year people come to Alaska to go skiing and snowboarding and are shut down by weather.  It’s just the reality.  Some people come year after yearoff_days with great luck and ski their whole trip.  You never know.  Why take the chance?…because when it is good there is no place in the world like Alaska, and more specifically Valdez and Thompson pass!

Although we average 80% fly days, the same storms and incredible snowfall that make this place amazing, do occasionally prevent us from flying.  When weather prohibits safe flying, with Black Ops Valdez, you’ve got options.  If relaxing and enjoying the lodge isn’t of interest, we offer a variety of activities including…

Snowcat Skiing

Sled Skiing

Boat Tours

Snowmobiling Tours

Snowcat Tours

Ski Touring

Cross Country Skiing


Ice Climbing


Hot Tub




Also, BOV is the only operation in Alaska to offer firearm Shooting as a down day activity.  Our staff has years of experience in safe firearm handling practices and we offer a variety of firearms and shooting options.  What Alaskan adventure would be complete without blasting a few rounds off?   Valdez has several shooting ranges and areas designated for just that.  Prices depend on firearm choice and current price of ammunition.  A safety briefing and instruction are required.
