Praxis Skis, a local Truckee ski manufacturing company is proud to announce the newest member of our Athlete Team, Dean Cummings of H20 Guides out of Valdez, Alaska. Dean brings with him years of industry, safety, and extreme skiing knowledge.

In the never ending quest to find the best powder ski, Keith O’Meara founder of Praxis Skis and Dean Cummings founder of H20 Guides have teamed up to bring the skiing industry the NEW – Dean Cummings Signature Model Ski. The skis vitals come in at 191 Length, 165 tip, 133 waist and 149 in the tail.

This ski claims it’s ranking at the top of the Praxis Skis line up as the biggest powder ski we build. The Dean Cummings Signature Model ski provides the best of both worlds, a ski that creates an effortless powder turn while still affords the skier a luxury ride back to the lift.

In the December 2006 issue of Powder Magazine, Dean was selected by his peers as one of the 48 Most Influential Skiers of our Time.

From a successful career on the US Ski Team, winning the World Extreme Skiing Championships in 1995, to developing the premier Alaska heli-ski company, Dean’s vision and commitment to guiding over the last 19 years has advanced the development of mechanized guiding protocols and techniques throughout North America, playing a vital role in the success of pioneering Alaska helicopter skiing.

The family-owned company is the longest running heli ski business under one owner in Valdez and the only company based there full time. They work all year refining the operations, expanding their scope, and staying on the cutting edge of mountain, glacier, aircraft, and snow safety. Offering the highest quality heli-skiing experience in Alaska, H20 Guides is the best operator out there.
Located in Snowbird, UT and Valdez, AK. If you’re looking for a backcountry adventure look no further then H20 Guides, Dean and his guides access some of the best terrain in the world. H20 Guides also provides/hosts Snow safety awareness seminars and the only American Mechanized Ski Guide Course available in the U.S.
