You’d be forgiven for thinking this video is from winter last season, February or March maybe. But no, it was taken just this week as the lucky Silverton Mountain Guides, Alaska heli-skiing crew made the first turns of the season after a series of potent early storms recently pounded Alaska.

The early season snowfall in Alaska has left a 12 foot base of snow at elevation, so the heli crew wasted no time firing up the chopper and skiing and snowboarding. What they found was incredible deep powder and miles and miles of untracked snow. The fresh snow and current conditions are some of the best ever encountered this early and made for an awesome opening day to the 2017-18 Alaska Heli season.

And the forecast for the next few days? More precipitation…
