Heli Skiing

Bella Coola Heliskiing

Heli skiing in Canada – A Land Without Limits

Come to the birthplace of guided heli-skiing tours, where Hans Gmoser, a mountain guide originating from Austria, is commonly credited to have started the industry of heli skiing in British Columbia back in 1965. Since then, dozens of premier heliski operations have opened up throughout BC’s vast mountain ranges, and the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region is no exception with 3 operations covering over 1.5 million hectares of skiable terrain.

Imagine exploring varied, unparalleled terrain in a vast region, an area larger than the entire Swiss Alp mountain range. Hop off your dedicated, professionally-piloted ride after it soars up and over the mountains, with rotor blades whirling and amping up the adrenaline factor.

Lay down fresh tracks with limitless runs and vertical, where the only limit is your imagination (and stamina). Take in champagne powder skiing or boarding, with an average annual snowfall providing 5-25 metres (16-82 feet) of untouched white gold to offer up a once-in-a-lifetime experience (but of course you are more than welcome to return!). All you have to do is choose where you’d like to go first.
