Bella Coola offer exclusively small group heli-skiing from 4 – 8 nights for just 4 to 5 guest per group with a highly experienced guide and never more than 3 groups per heli. Small groups means less waiting and more skiing! They offer the 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! 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).
The Lodging: Tweedsmuir Lodge
The maximum capacity is 18 people per week. They generally fly with loads of four people and one guide, but on occasion fly with up to five people in the machine. The lodge has a large living room / dining room with fireplace, sports bar with fireplace, billiards table, games and satellite TV, spa facility with outdoor covered hot tub, washrooms with showers, stretching, yoga and massage areas, guest media room with computer access, fax/telephone service, wireless computer access throughout the lodge, chalets and cabin and retail shop.
There are also several other lodges some of which are for private group reservations. Contact us and we can advise the best option for your Heli-skiing trip.
Bella Coola’s Classic Vert program is ideal for experienced and powder skiers and boarders, as well as those who have never heli-skied before, including families. These program can be booked for 4, 5 or 7 nights.
Tours can be booked as an individual, as a couple, as a small group, and as a large group for those looking to buy out the entire lodge.
If you prefer to heli-ski with just your friends, then the magic number to book is a group of four as that exactly fills one load in the helicopter.
