Local Knowledge

Endless Terrain

Fully Customizable Trips

We are based in Juneau and have decades of experience guiding in the Chilkat and Coast Ranges, and on the Juneau Icefield. Our guides are locals who know where to go and are committed to getting you to the goods. 

We have over a million acres of permitted terrain. Whether you are looking for steep lines, long powder runs, backcountry touring, or ski mountaineering, we can make it happen. 

We offer personalized packages that fit your needs and schedule. Combine heliskiing with backcountry touring. Add flexibility to your package with additional days. We can make it work for you. 

We operate in partnership with our good friends at Eaglecrest Ski Area – Alaska’s best kept secret for phenomenal terrain and backcountry access. 

We partner with Weston Backcountry and offer our guests opportunities to demo Weston snowboards and splitboards. 

Alaska Powder Descents operates in partnership with the US Forest Service.
