Alaska is big, raw and untamed in a way that is impossible to describe until you have experienced it. Whether you get your thrills on skis or not, Alaska is somewhere everyone should visit at least once in their lives. If you are a skier or snowboarder, the heli-skiing potential is mind-blowing.
With warm, moist air flowing off the Pacific and mixing with the cooler arctic air of the Alaskan interior the resulting snow conditions are mind-blowing.
Although famous for the big, steep lines in the movies, there is plenty of terrain to keep the less vertically inclined happy.
