Cordova, Alaska

Alaska’s Chugach Range is a monumental ski destination with limitless spines, untracked lines and it’s unclear if jokes about there being more helicopters than cars derive from truth or not. When Kevin and Jessica Quinn started Points North Heli Adventures they knew they were taking a risk, but 20 years of operating and 17 visits from Warren Miller Entertainment later, it’s all been worth it. For east coast transplant turned Jackson Hole local Jim Ryan, PNH is the ideal first trip to Alaska and luckily, he’s got freeskiing legend Dash Longe with him to explore the territory.
