Richard Villa of Saint Elias Alpine Guides:
Extreme Skiing and Snowboarding

Taste why Valdez is famous! Starting in February the 'extreme' (Free skiing) skiing and snowboarding world gravitates towards Valdez, Alaska and the Chugach Mountains of Thompson Pass.

There are SnowCats, Fixed wing aircraft, and helicopters available to ferry YOU to the best skiing experience you have ever had. 20K of Vertical Feet of skiing never felt better.

The pinnacle happens around the first week of April when the World Extreme Skiing Championships will decide you is the most fearless skier and the "King of the Hill Snowboard Competition" weeds out the squires from the Kings.

See ya in Valdez!
