The ultimate in flexibility & exclusivity
WHAT IS A PRIVATE PACKAGE?
It's the ultimate in flexibility and exclusivity.
A Private package will give you your own private helicopter, pilots and personal guides.
It's even possible to have exclusive use of our lodges!
The program will be based on your desires and will operate independently of our regular programs.
Where the Vertical programs are based on vertical feet, the Private packages are based on flying time.
- Min. ability Strong Intermediate
- Group size 1-4 or 5-8 people
- Groups per heli just 1!
- Season Early Winter, Winter, Spring, Summer
Your helicopter. Your guides. Your program. This is the ultimate choice if you want to heliski with just your crew.
This is Bella Coola Heli Sports' most exclusive program: a private helicopter just for you and your friends or family. Everything is designed to guarantee operational flexibility and therefore maximize the chances of finding the best snow and the ultimate heliskiing holiday of your life.
If you are a group of rippers, this program will guarantee you won't be waiting on strangers. If you are a family, you can ski at your own pace and not have to worry about other people. It's your experience....you decide!
Why choose a Private program and not the Classic Vert?
Since the program is based on flying time rather then a set amount of vertical, you and your group can decide how to use that time. Whether your goal is to explore new terrain, ski as many runs as possible, or look for the best snow, the choice is yours. You could even decide to fly to a hot spring overlooking the Pacific Ocean, eat lunch on the beach and go for a soak in the hot springs before spending the rest of the afternoon heliskiing! You can fly far and wide: from the high peaks surrounding the lodge, to the ice caps in the south, and on to the fjords in the west, or you can even decide to sleep in and enjoy a late start.
The helicopter we use is the Astar B2 with room for four people and one guide in 1 group (maybe 5 depending on total weight) at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, Eagle Lodge and the Foster's Ranch, while at Pantheon we run a Bell 205++ for just 1 group of 8 people!
The entire lodge can be yours
What is better than booking your own helicopter? Having the entire operation exclusively for your family reunion or a large group of buddies! We have had huge success with lodge buy-outs, with not only amazing heli-skiing, but our lodge team often exceeds guest expectations by organizing non-skiing activities such as the Bella Coola Olympics! Tweedsmuir Park Lodge has a capacity of 16 people, while both Eagle Lodge and Pantheon Heli Ranch accommodate 8 people and our most exclusive location, Foster's Ranch, hosts just 4 people!
