Alaska's Heli-Ski alternative

Back country ski Alaska

Ultima Thule is pleased to anounce a new partnership with Pacific Alpine Guides and the opening of our newest property - Tebay Lodge

Four mountain ranges converge here. 13 million acres of virgin powder. But you can’t heli ski here. So why is everyone talking about skiing the Wrangell/St. Elias?

My friend, you have just discovered plane-assisted back country skiing.


Lodge-based fly and backcountry ski adventures give you the best of all worlds: Days in the Alaskan wilderness with boundless untracked powder lines, followed by nights in the luxury of a private, full service lodge with hearty meals and maximum rejuvenation in our cedar-fired hot tub.

Packages include 2 days of plane assisted drop offs

 " In this 13-million acre stretch ...Paul Claus can spend 1,000 hours a year flying and skiing ... and never cover the same space twice.”

– Powder Magazine, The Skier's Magazine


Together with Pacific Alpine Guides we have created a plane assisted ski touring adventure that's way beyond the beaten heli path.

Leave tracks inside the largest National Park in N. America. Tour directly from the lodge or fly-out to neighboring peaks for maximum adventure.

And at the end of a day you'll relish our cozy, hand crafted wilderness lodge, where your creature comforts will be replenished in the warth and  of the sauna and hottub or while you share stories over a gourmet Alaskan meal.

Each morning, renewed, you'll find a new stash is out there waiting.

Space is extremely limited for the 2017 season -
