Chris Shannon


Heli Ski Guide & Pilot. Nome, Alaska. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1979, I grew up at my parent's remote lodge on the Tokositna River, which is located inside Denali National Park on the south side of the Alaska Range. Showing our state to guests from all over the world, I helped local dog mushers with lodge tours and later ran the riverboat for my parents. In 1996, at 16, I was the first snowboarder to race in Arctic Man. At 18, I ended up in Nome, Alaska, where I continue to find the perfect combination of work and play. With my wife Anahma, I built our own home 13 miles north of Nome at Banner Creek and raised two amazing kids, Shyloah & Kive. We love flying our Taylorcraft around western Alaska and have had countless adventures with it! Although I have worked at Bering Air for the past 21 years, I only recently made the decision to fly commercially. Getting helicopter fever not long ago, I attained my commercial helicopter rating last April and have been busy getting on line since. I do some seasonal guiding for Twin Peaks Adventures, which includes springtime heli-ski tours in Western Alaska. I’m always looking for the next adventure, whether hunting, fishing, floating, or hitting the local hot springs. As the saying goes, the road goes on forever, and the good times never end…
