Amenities & Activities

Alternative Adventures

Fortunately there's no shortage of other adventures in Bella Coola to enjoy, be it because of a weather day, or because you've reached your vertical target or need a rest day. This is a perfect opportunity to take in some of the many adventures offered by the Bella Coola valley. Special Note: Some, not all, of these activities involve additional fees for rental equipment, transportation and guiding services. These activities are also available to non-skiing guests.

 

River Fishing

Both the Atnarko and the Bella Coola Rivers have a long history and offer world-class sport fishing opportunities. Keen anglers are invited to bring their own equipment. We are strong supporters of fly-fishing, and the catch & release program.

 

Sightseeing & Hiking

From quick hikes in the old growth forest to more intense hiking throughout the valley, points of interest can include the Sir Alexander MacKenzie Grease Trail. This trail marks the culmination of the first crossing of the North American continent in 1793.

 

Mountain Biking

The main road past the lodge is usually snow free in the winter and an excellent place to go for a ride.  There is very little traffic and the scenery is simply spectacular. Later in the spring it is also possible to go for rides on the many forest service roads in the valley.

 

Native Culture

The Nuxalk ("new hawk") culture is expressed in the Bella Coola valley, both through traditional dances and native arts. There are a number of small galleries highlighting local artists and carvers. Some of the local carvings are displayed in the Smithsonian museum. Arts and crafts are available for purchase. Tours to the 10,000-year-old Petroglyphs are also very popular and a local Nuxalk guide can accompany you.

 

Natural Hot Springs & Harbour Tours

These tours can be taken by our A Star B2 helicopters or by boat. The hot springs are situated on the coast of Bentinck Arm inlet, providing a beautiful eco-setting in which to relax and soak.
