Heli skiing needs no introduction. If you’ve been waiting for the nudge to book your trip, here it is. $250 off for an all-Inclusive (meals, lodging, transportation) 7 day and 7 night heli ski trip in Cordova, AK, with Points North Heli-Adventures. PNH is the only heli-skiing operation utilizing the southeastern side of the Chugach Mountains, the premier destination worldwide for helicopter skiing and boarding, and has been in operation for 17 years and featured in 12 Warren Miller movies. At no extra cost, I will be attending the trip and will be your personal photographer for the full week. These trips book fast and discounts are rare. This is your opportunity to not only get the trip of your dreams, but to get epic photos documenting what is sure to be a life-changing experience.

I’m a photographer and ski coach based in Lake Tahoe. You may have seen some of my photography on SnowBrains, I post monthly photo updates from around the lake.

The available dates are February 28-March 7, April 11-18, or April 18-25. To get the discounted rate of $5325 for the full week and the photo documentation, we’ll need 3 people. If you’re interested, get in touch with me at matt@mattbansak.com

What are people saying about PNH?

It was perhaps one of the pinnacle moments in my life, certainly in skiing! Closing my eyes I can remember every ridge, rock and view as we made our way down Pontoon. These are the moments we all live to achieve, most don’t, and I feel very fortunate. The PNH crew was like a giant extended family, always there to help and entertain, almost never a dull moment. If I could imagine a perfect place to spend my winter, this would be it!


This definitely goes down as one of the premiere experiences of my life! As an intermediate rider, I was very intimidated by the prospect of skiing in AK. When I got here, and saw the mountains, I was downright nervous! Any doubts that I had in myself or in the guides melted away after the first run! The guides selected funs that were exactly what I was after. It was as if they’d read my mind. Even through the steepest sections of slope, I felt comfortable because the guides were always supportive, patient and in good position. I never felt rushed, out of my element or in danger. It was nothing like I expected. Thank-you all for the best ski day of my life. We’ll be back!


Had to drop a quick note about my amazing Alaska week. . . The people, weather, snow and terrain all combined for an unbelievable adventure. And I honestly believe it wouldn’t have happened without the Alaskan Ladies Week you hold each year. It brought together four strangers who became fast friends before the first day was through. You gave us the knowledge, guidance and support to tackle the Alaskan terrain. And as the days passed and the sun continued to shine, I felt my confidence grow and my skiing improve. Every day was even more fun than the next. Alaska, and especially Points North, is a unique experience every skier should be fortunate to have. Thanks so much to you, the entire PNH crew and the other “Alaskan ladies” for making one week out of the year easily the best week of my life!!
