Winter is an incredible time of year. The short nights and cold days bring snow and everything good that comes with it, from skiing to sled racing. And perhaps the pinnacle of winter experience is a heli skiing trip.

Heli skiing takes your passions to the edge, as you go to remote regions of the world to get into a chopper that lifts you to the top of gnarliest peaks around.

One of the best places to heli ski in the world is in Haines, Alaska. We recently got a photo tour from our friends and heli skiing outfit SEABA Heli. Rather than tell you what we saw, we’d like to show you.

Here are 17 of images to inspire you to heli ski Alaska.

Ryan is The Dyrt's Managing Editor. With over 10 years writing and digital growth experience and even more experience in the outdoors, he is excited about The Dyrt's early growth and trajectory. Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and--to him--it feels strange.
