‘World’s Best Heli-Ski Operation’ – 2017 2018, 2019 & 2020 World Ski Awards and the planet’s first heliski company to be “climate positive”!


Bella Coola Heli Sports boasts one of the largest tenures in the world offering 3.55 million acres of the most sought after heliskiing and heliboarding on the planet!

I had kept my eyes open for a place to start a heliskiing operation, a place which would suit my demands and special needs. It did not take long before I realized that this would be somewhere in British Columbia´s vast mountain ranges, to be precise, in the B.C. Coast Range. I was not just looking for big mountains with a lot of snow. I was looking for a lifestyle suited to my picky character. It took me 20 years but I did find it. I found my Shangri-La in Bella Coola!

Coast Mountains: Our ski terrain is 3.55 million acres of exclusive, jaw-dropping terrain, unlike any other in Canada.

From stunning scenic fjords to the highest peak in British Columbia, our heli-ski permit area has an inspiring range of untracked terrain, as vast as the entire Swiss Alps for our exclusive use.


Open (Season):
Our season runs from early December to late April. Space is limited so please book early.

Tour Availability: From steep skiing to heli-assisted ski touring, our exceptional heliskiing experiences will leave you spilt for choice!

We offer an industry-leading range of programs to suit every type of skier & rider. Whether you’re an expert wanting steeper terrain, or it’s your first time heli-skiing and you’re looking for something a little more tame, we’ve got the perfect experience for you.

Lodging: 5 luxury wilderness lodges & 1 gorgeous catamaran. Whether you’re planning a heli-ski experience with family or a bunch of your best friends, we have a range of lodging options to meet the needs of individuals, couples, small groups, and parties of up to 16.

Location: Canada’s easiest lodge-based heli-skiing operation to get to. While we are located in the remote, rugged wilderness of British Columbia, it might surprise you to know that Bella Coola is a short 70-minute flight north of Vancouver. Because it takes very little time to get to our lodges, it is possible to ski on departure days!

Food Services: All of our lodges offer West-Coast inspired gourmet dining to ensure you’re well fed after a day carving vertical on the mountain. Our chefs accommodate all different kinds of diets, serving delicious and hearty meals with local ingredients and produce – accompanied by a wine list that includes a selection of fine international bottles, as well as the best local British Columbia wines.
