The skiing at Ripley Creek is rugged, raw and amazingly spectacular. As the mountain guides here will tell you, “You pay for the skiing, not the fancy extras”. With massive glacial runs and extensive tree skiing and a snowfall record that is so frequent and so intense it will bury a car in hours, you get a real sense of remoteness and “wilderness skiing”. Regular comments from frequent visitors tell us that you don’t get this feeling of remoteness with any other heli operators in the region. The full focus really is on the quality of the skiing, the amazing snow and this rugged, beautifully wild landscape.
As one regular noted “Stewart is an old gold mining town on the boarder of Alaska, where you are more likely to see bears and men with guns on the street then you are any other skiers or boarders. It is definitely not Courchevel.”
Long glacial runs, many over 2000m vertical, allow for endless powder turns and incredible, untracked descents.
