Alaska – The Snow Junkies http://www.thesnowjunkies.com Lodging, Gear, and Lift Ticket Deals for Skiers and Snowboarders Thu, 07 Mar 2013 01:32:38 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 $999 Alaska Heli-Skiing Trip and Other Ski Deals From Costco http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/15/999-alaska-heli-skiing-trip-and-other-ski-deals-from-costco/ http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/2011/01/15/999-alaska-heli-skiing-trip-and-other-ski-deals-from-costco/#respond Sun, 16 Jan 2011 01:18:33 +0000 http://www.thesnowjunkies.com/?p=5239

About this time of year, we like to check with megastore Costco to see what oversized lift ticket deals they may have. In past seasons, they have offered multi-day discounts and even a season pass.

But a heli-skiing ticket? That’s freakin’ awesome. For $999, you get a punch card that lets you get 25,000 vertical feet at Valdez Heli-Camps. This is a three-day trip with deluxe lodging and airfare is NOT included. Double up to 50,000 vert and five days for $1,999.

There’s a few other deals like $50 tickets to June ($199 4-Pack) and $50 Big White/Silver Star ($99 2-Pack). These deals change so if you’re interested scoop one up. And no, we don’t get any kickbacks from Costco. Just trying to help everyone save money!
