BELLA COOLA HELI SPORTS VOTED #1 IN THE WORLD
AT 2017 WORLD SKI AWARDS
WHISTLER, BC (November 19, 2017) - Bella Coola Heli Sports was named the “World’s Best Heli-Ski Operator” at the 2017 World Ski Awards in Kitzbühel, Austria. The award was presented as part of the 5th World Ski Awards, recognizing, rewarding and celebrating excellence in ski tourism organizations across the globe. Every year, hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and skiers vote for their favourite tourism products and brands.
Based in the Coast Range mountains of British Columbia, Canada, Bella Coola Heli Sports offers a unique heliski experience, with small groups of skiers enjoying the world’s largest contiguous heliski terrain, over 100 feet of annual snowfall and four lodges, including Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, one of Canada’s most celebrated wilderness resorts.
“We are stoked to be recognized as the best in the world by the World Ski Awards”, says Beat Steiner, co-owner of Bella Coola Heli Sports. “Bella Coola has some of the most spectacular heliskiing anywhere and we have exclusive access to over 2.64 million acres of terrain. We ski in groups of only four people to provide the ultimate heliski experience in the biggest mountain in British Columbia.”
Steiner also highlights the importance of the team at Bella Coola Heli Sports.
“We are fortunate to have some of the most experienced heliski guides in the world. Our guides have worked everywhere from Alaska to the Himalayas, so this allows us to offer truly exhilarating skiing while maintaining the highest safety standards possible. Off the snow, people rave about the attention to detail and personalized service provided by the staff at our lodges.”
At the end of the ski day, guests relax and rejuvenate at one of four wilderness lodges, including Tweedsmuir Park Lodge in the Great Bear Rainforest. Tweedsmuir Park Lodge was nominated as Canada’s Leading Wilderness Resort at the 2017 World Travel Awards and is currently (at time of publishing) the #1 Hotel in British Columbia as rated by TripAdvisor.
