Bella Coola Heli Sports caters to skiers and boarders who have experience heli-skiing as well as those who don’t. Despite a truly remote and rugged location deep in the Coast Range, the heli op’s base is only a 70-minute flight north of Vancouver. There are numerous flight options out of Vancouver International Airport, and transfer flights to Bella Coola Heli Sports is included in most multi-day packages. Visit their website for info.
Bella Coola Heli Sports is known for offering excellent small-group heli-skiing over 3.25 million acres in the Coast Mountains of B.C. Skiers lodge at one of five properties: Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, Eagle Lodge, Pantheon Heli Ranch, Mystery Mountain Lodge, and Terra Nostra Guest Ranch. Bracewell’s Lodge, featured in the film, is not currently open to the public, but plans are underway to add it to the operation’s lodging portfolio in the future.
