Helicopter Skiing in Girdwood, Alaska
Not to knock on the guys at CPG at all, but if you are going to Alaska and want the full heli experience you should go to either Haines (some of the biggest most extreme lines there is) or go to Valdez (325 inches average of snow in town, 550 inches average at Thompson Pass), or if you can afford it CPG's Tordrillo lodge is supposed to be absolutely amazing (unfortunately a week long trip will set you back $9500). My personal opinion, go snowcat skiing, you might not get as much vertical in and it doesn't have the sheer awesomeness of heli skiing, but its about a third of the price (a full day heli skiing will put you back $1075 and cat skiing is only $325 or if you are able to hop on standby $285).
