Bella Coola Heli-Skiing

Why heli-ski with Bella Coola?

 Exclusively Small Group Heli-Skiing – just 4 to 5 guest per group with a highly experienced
guide

Best Helicopters for Heli-Skiing – the A-Star, with only 2 to 3 groups sharing 1 machine

World’s Largest Tenure from 1 Lodge – at 2.64 million acres (10,700 sq/kms or 4,300 sq/m),
that’s 499 times bigger than all of Vail, 325 times Whistler-Blackcomb combined, 90 times larger
than the whole Trois Vallées and bigger than the entire Swiss Alps!

Ski First Descents – due to the enormous size of Bella Coola’s terrain, guests can still ski first
descents, especially at the Pantheon base. This is extremely rare in Canadian heliskiing.

Huge Snowfalls – Bella Coola receives between 65-100ft (20-30m) on average over the winter!

Huge Diversity in Terrain - Glaciers, open bowls, gladed trees, hugh rock spires.

Huge Vertical & Long Descents - Many runs are 5000 to 6000 vertical feet (1500 to 1800
vertical

Bella Coola offers Expert Only programs, but also cater to 1st timers and less aggressive skiers  (you should be a strong intermediate i.e. can ski blue runs with confidence and some black runs).
