Alaska

Join World Extreme Skiing champion, Kim Reichhelm, at her ski camp based out of Alaska’s Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, where you will not only have the opportunity to heli-ski, but also to enjoy the local fishing.

Reichhelm’s unique ski camps are custom-tailored to the ability levels of the participants and take place all around the world, so if you can’t make this camp (June 12–18, 2013), then try one in Colorado, Utah, British Columbia, or Chile. skiwithkim.com
