COVID-19 Updates

Our latest news, response, and policies

In March of 2020, Chugach Powder Guides closed its doors in the prime of a great winter. CPG places a premium on safety, and in the interest of our guests, employees, and community, we ended our season when we would normally be at full stride. Then, and now, our thoughts are with everyone personally affected by the novel coronavirus pandemic.

As we look forward, we believe the perspective of a mountain experience will be more valuable than ever. To that end, Chugach Powder Guides remains committed to providing the best helicopter skiing and snowboarding experiences in the world. While the challenges posed by the pandemic are unique and unprecedented, we expect to take every necessary step to ensure that we can operate responsibly in the seasons to come.

The boundlessness of the Chugach will be here for you when you're ready to come. In addition to safety measures and thoughtful planning, booking flexibility will be a key tool in making this possible. For 2021, new bookings will be fully refundable until October 1st (excluding some payment methods). After October 1st, any cancellations or interruptions due to COVID-19 will be rolled forward as credit to the following season.

Our office remains open, and we hope you don't hesitate to be in touch with inquiries about Alaska and CPG's program.
