The 2023 season has drawn to a close and summer is in full swing, but we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible adventures and achievements that made last winter truly unforgettable. We are proud to say that Triple Point Expeditions completed another successful season, catering to passionate skiers from around the world.

The Experience

The TPX mission centers around offering skiers and riders an incredible Alaska experience and the heli-ski trip of a lifetime. The 2023 season was no exception, with guests enjoying an array of unforgettable days in the mountains. From naming first descents in new zones to carving through deep powder in the Chugach, our guests continued to revel in the remarkable skiing opportunities that only Alaska can provide. Exceptional snow conditions constantly delivered from start to finish and every week was as memorable as the last.

Our Guests

We extend a warm thank you to both new and returning guests from around the world who joined us during the 2023 season. It was a pleasure to share the beauty and excitement of Alaska helicopter skiing with individuals who traveled far and wide to experience the uniqueness of our operation. Your presence and enthusiasm enriched our season, reminding us of the universal love for adventure and the unifying power of the mountains. We eagerly await the chance to welcome you back  as we continue to share the magnitude of Alaska with skiers and riders worldwide.

The Kids Made It To AK!

Owner Tucker Patton had the joy of fulfilling a lifelong dream as he welcomed his entire family, including his 3 young kids three kids, for the first time. Witnessing their excitement as they explored the Alaska together, sharing laughter and thrilling adventures, their visit truly enriched our heli - ski operation.
