Bella Coola Heli Sports

Canada: British Columbia

Bella Coola Heli Sports is your choice if you are looking for a special experience: small groups for skiing, all this within wild and breathtaking, heavily glaciated scenery!

Pre Trip Preparation

With our huge terrain, small group sizes, and efficient helicopters, you can bank on getting a LOT of skiing or snowboarding on your trip. Do yourself a favour and be sure to get some fall training or early season skiing in before your trip so that you can make the most of our terrain and your valuable time.

 

What to Bring

Here is a quick list to help you remember all the things that will make your trip comfortable. Remember that many thin layers are much more versatile than one or two heavy ones. The weather in our coastal mountains can change quickly and you will want to be able to take off a layer or add one when you are out skiing or riding. The guy in the one-piece down suite will be hating life when the sun comes out...
