Classic Vert

The traditional heli-skiing experience

Program Description

February 4 - April 22, 2023

Tried, tested, and true. These mid, peak and late season programs are the benchmark standard for heli-skiing across North America.

Available as either a 4, 5, or 7 night option, these programs included a specific number of vertical feet per person to be used throughout your time in Bella Coola.

The amount of vertical feet included varies based on the duration of the program.

  1. Ability Level Strong Intermediate or above
  2. Group size 4 or 6 people (depending on lodge)
  3. Groups per heli 2 or 3 (depending on lodge)
  4. Season Mid, Peak, Late

This is our most popular program & is suitable for seasoned heli-skiers, families, and heliski first-timers alike.

Whether you’ve always wanted to try your hand at heli-skiing or boarding, you’re looking for a fun and unique experience to share with your family, or you’re gathering a group of buddies together for a thrill-seeking adventure, our Classic Vert program is an experience unlike any other. Your only concern will be to enjoy the heli skiing and boarding while racking up the vertical!

Who should book?

Our Classic Vert program is appropriate for experienced and powder skiers and boarders, as well as those who have never heliskied before, including families. 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.
