We are a family business and operate by the golden rule. We were the first operation in Alaska, but as the industry trended to expensive packages and immense luxury, we have attempted to stay core to our roots, and keep heliskiing as affordable as possible.
From mellow powder fields to fluted spine walls, our 300,000 acres should make backcountry enthusiasts of all abilities happy. We enjoy all of our terrain, and believe it is not always about turning the dial all the way up to be happy.
We have 20 acres of secluded wilderness that we are turning into paradise. There is no cell phone signal. We have internet, but its not unlimited nor high speed, and we turn it off at night while we sleep.
滚球体育We are building a 4,500 sqft A-frame made from timbers we milled ourselves, from trees we logged ourselves, that were growing on our property. We have chickens and bees. We garden, forage, ferment, preserve, and chop wood for heat.
“If you want to ride in Haines you better know Seandog. He started the operation so he could ride with his friends. His operation is “AK Style.” You will not be picked up in a fancy car, or served hot chocolate on the glacier, but with any luck you will ride the best run of your life.” – Jeremy Jones
In the early 1980’s, co-founders Bruce Griggs and Seandog Brownell could be found hiring random helicopters, duct taping their skis to the skids, and establishing first descents from Valdez to Juneau. Soon after, Bruce and Seandog would take winters off from construction and commercial fishing to charter helicopters from Coastal Helicopters, who still serve us today, to merely… go skiing with their friends.
The dream moved from Juneau to Valdez, but as it became crowded, Seandog and Bruce decided to head back home to Juneau and incorporated Out of Bounds Adventures. They created a film called, Alaskan Extremes, and soon after, other media productions would rely on their guiding and experience to get their projects done. Out of Bounds Adventures became Alaska Heliskiing, and has provided production services for Discovery, IMAX, Absinthe Films, TGR, Matchstick Productions, and many others.
滚球体育Seandog is now partnered with guest turned co-owner, Stephen Spaeth. Stephen has been heliskiing for 20 years in North America and Europe. Stephen created a climbing gym chain before turning to media production, cattle ranching, and permaculture. Seandog and Stephen have shared creative visions for their property at 35 mile Haines Hwy, and are currently building an A-frame lodge for the guests there. Its been a long time coming, but they are pursuing their dreams, and would love to share it with you.
