Chugach Powder Guides, which is headquartered near the base of Alyeska Resort, is famous for its epic helicopter skiing trips into the Alaska backcountry.

Recently Chugach Powder Guides joined forces with Sun Valley Heli Ski Guides, which operates out of the fabled Idaho ski resort, to create "a convergence of talents" known as EpiQuest, a global multi-sport adventure company.

The first change that longtime guests of either guide service will notice is the fact that your credit is now transferable between Chugach Powder Guides and Sun Valley Heli Ski, allowing you more opportunities to get up in the air and deep in the powder.

The combined forces also have put together a number of combo packages designed at helping you get your "heli legs" under you in Sun Valley before going to Alaska. One such package is two days flying and riding in Sun Valley and five days flying and riding in Girdwood; another is two days in Sun Valley and seven days in Alaska. 

EpiQuest, in its guise as a luxury adventure travel company, is planning on conducting river-run excursions, fly fishing trips, cycling outings, and safaris out of its outposts in Girdwood; Sun Valley; Hawaii; Verbier, Switzerland; Bhutan; and Kenya.
