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!

"Welcome to powder paradise"

Bella Coola Heli Sports is a very special experience. You will start your heli trip in big city Vancouver with a super tiny aircraft for Bella Coola guests only. The 1.15h flight takes you over snowcapped, sugar-white mountain ranges. On the left you can see the ocean from time to time. After a short and beautiful flight over the snowcapped Coast Mountains, you will land in the middle of  untamed wilderness in beautiful Bella Coola Valley. Welcome to powder paradise! Up here - it’s a whole different world, so let the adventure begin. All the stress and buzz of jobs and big city life really belong to a different world now – up here life feels incredibly different. It’s all about endless powder skiing, the runs of your life and having good times with old and new skiing buddies.

The execution of your trip is insane. You will get off the plane and step into the heli hangar, which is immediately next to the airfield. The guides will prepare your skis, boards and boots for you. In between, you charge your batteries with some delicious wraps, hot tea or hot chocolate, and some granola bars. Some extensive safety briefings later, you’re sitting in the chopper to start your heli adventure and make your way to the lodge on skis. Now it´s about pow time - feel the canadian powder! The legend is true.

"Rugged mountains with tons of impressive glaciers"

The skiing takes place in some of the most beautiful mountain ranges of Canada: very wild and rugged mountains with tons of impressive glaciers. Maybe you remember the scene from „Seven Years in Tibet“ which was produced here. Bella Coola is located in the middle of incredibly stunning nature with massive mountains, untamed nature and rich wildlife. The whole area is undermined by mist-cloaked rivers and fjords that are extremely beautiful.

Also there´s a another big strongpoint of the packages offered: The flight from Vancouver to Bella Coola is included already! Saves you a lot of money and definitely enriches the whole experience!
