Peaks around Haines, Alaska rise up to 18,008 feet.

If you’re looking for amazing heli-skiing, you might want to plan your next vacation to Haines, Alaska.

Haines, located in the southeast region of Alaska, is surrounded by the highest coastal mountains in the world. The Fairweather Range and the Saint Elias Mountains receive huge amounts of dry, stable snow from the mingling of warmer ocean air with winds from the Arctic.

If you're not convinced, check out the video above.

While you can watch the whole 10 minutes, we recommend fast-forwarding to the amazing ski footage from 4:00-8:00.
