Big Mountain – Bella Coola Heli Sports
Read Interview With Big Mountain
Bella Coola Helisports stripped out the fluff and focused on the goods. Big Mountain Heli-Skiing is all about maximizing your vertical and getting the most bang for your buck. All the energy directed to providing more heliskiing, your dollar buys you more vertical than is possible elsewhere, but not by compromising quality! They retained all the key elements that make the Bella Coola Heli Skiing experience special. Groups are still small, plus all the other many advantages of flying with Bella Coola Heli Sports in the smaller A-star helicopters. If you’re happy with comfortable lodging, do not require extravagant meals, aren’t worried about excessive pampering, but want as much time on snow as you can afford, look no further. They encourage you to make your own comparisons.
The Bella Coola Valley is located approximately 400 kilometres north of Vancouver in the Coast Mnt. Range of British Columbia. The base is located at the Coast Mountain Lodge in the drier and sunnier eastern end of the Bella Coola Valley.
Impressive alpine terrain including glaciers, bowls and dramatic vistas. You can count on runs of 5000 to 6000 vertical feet (1500 to 1800 vertical metres), with the longest yielding 7000 thigh-burning vertical feet (2150 vertical meters) of bliss. Take Vail Colorado, stack Steamboat on top of it, remove all but 8 of the skiers, and add untracked snow from top to bottom.
