I am happy to work on the ramps as well to begin and have decided to do the 50 hour course to give me some experience bush flying. Any other tips or information or information would be greatly appreciated.

Alaskans in particular want "Alaskan" experience due mainly to weather and compass/dead reckoning navigation issues, the landing sites are no more difficult than anywhere else, in fact often easier because of generally less runway obstructions.
Expect to start out flying easy stuff (if you get to fly at all....) until confidence is built up by everyone involved.
