World Heli Challenge Valdez Alaska

World Heli Challenge

VALDEZ, AK – The World Heli Challenge will be taking place April 14th-24th 2012 in Alaska and then will head south to New Zealand for a stop in Wanaka August 1-14 2012. The first stop of the tour kicks off in the soaring mountains of Valdez Alaska this April.

The World Heli Challenge, King of the Hill and WESC are the pinnacle for so many freeriding athletes. There is something special that happens when you bring together the world’s finest snow athletes, take them in helicopters to the pick of the most awesome, heart-thumping terrain and let them do their best. It’s so much more than a competition. The support and enthusiasm we’ve had from the freeriding community worldwide has been humbling and that’s why we had to bring these events back, explains Harrington.

This list above is impressive, and who knows maybe one day your name can be added alongside some of the greats in our sport. Interested athletes need to email

The final selection of freeriders will be chosen by the 15th March.
