Guest from Toronto:
"The terrain was breathtaking. When the guides are standing in awe at the views you know you are witnessing something special."

Shane McConkey, Professional Skier:
"Bella Coola was one of the most stunning places I've ever had the opportunity to heli ski. “Swede” and crew have truly discovered an amazing new powder kingdom. I was constantly glued to the window of the heli scoping out some of the most spectacular terrain I have ever seen. Big, steep and deep, here's terrain for the fearless, as well as for the wussies. Wax your boards and get your butt up to Bella Coola."

Bella Coola really does have it all. Our incredible terrain and consistent snow means no snow making, no powder 8s and plenty of features and terrain to keep strong skiers & riders stoked.

Our size stats

(Bella Coola has) bigger terrain, bigger mountains. Bigger everything. It’s got everything that Alaska has, or Whistler or Europe really. As far as skiing goes it’s kinda the ultimate!” – Kye Peterson, pro-skier

3.55 million acres (14,370 sq/km) exclusive to Bella Coola Heli Sports and 668 times bigger than all of Vail, 434 times Whistler-Blackcomb combined, 137 times larger than the whole Trois Vallées and bigger than the entire Swiss Alps! All for a maximum of 56 guests spread over 5 lodges! 

We have so much terrain, we will rarely tell you to lay your tracks next to someone else's......go on, make huge arcing turns! We encourage powder 11s, not 8s...but if you like powder 8s, feel free to make them (we won't laugh.....too hard!). Note: there will be times where we do have to keep it tight for safety reasons. Guest must always listen to the guide's instructions.

Longest run

Many runs are 5000-6000ft (1500-1800m), with the longest yielding 7000ft (2150m) of leg-burning utopia.

Number of runs

Over 900 and counting... in fact, there's a huge amount of valleys, let alone face, where we haven't even skied yet!

Highest drop-off

Our highest drop-off is at 9500ft (2,896m) and lowest pick-up is at 3000ft (914m).

Highest Peak

The highest peak in our tenure is Mt.Monarch at 11,663ft (3,555m). However, the impressive Mt Waddington (13,186ft / 4,019m), the highest peak entirely in British Columbia, is just outside our boundary. While we don't ski it, we often take guests for a quick fly-by.
