About as detailed and high touch as a Heliski operation gets. Comfortable accommodations, excellent food, fabulous guides. What more can you ask for? One minor thing - if you are a petite woman, I recommend you take your own skis. The equipment they had was fine but being 5'2" and 118 pounds, I would have happier on my own skis.

Thanks for the kind words Nancy! You won't believe the timing of things...we just sent some smaller skis up to the lodges today. They will be perfect for lighter/smaller skiers :) See you next year! More

Good overall, the lodging was ok, the staff was cool, the ski terrain was faire but we know better, tree skiing is not their strength, snow is more moist than in interior Canada terrain. Bella Coola city nothing to see but the smoke salmon at the local fishery is stoning. The flight from and to Vancouver gives you the opportunity... More

Thanks for the survey Nicholas. Without doubt, we have some of the best ALPINE terrain in the world. It is why film companies such as Sherpas Cinema and MSP have filmed with us. Unfortunately for you guys, the weather wasn't that cooperative so we needed to keep you safe and not go to more challenging terrain. Having said that, you... More

Had an awesome time heli-boarding at Bella Coola Heli-sports. Had some amazing powder days. The guides and staff are top-notch and they go out of their way to make sure you have a great time! In addition to the snowboarding, the food and ambience is great. My wife loved the icelandic horses that were stabled near the lodge. We also... More

From start to finish this was the best ski trip I have ever been on. After arriving in Bella Coola you immediately go through avalanche training, get your skis and then get to Ski your way to the lodge. The next three days of skiing was exceptional; great terrain/snow, guides and accommodations.

Great experience. The mountains and the skiing are unparalleled. unbelievable beauty. The guides are great and willing to work with you on your experience. Eagle lodge was intimate, great food, great accommodations. Richard, our heli pilot was fabulous. If I had to find a suggestion, I would have the guides build in more diversity of terrain and create 1 or... More

This was a very special trip, one that my thirty-something sons and I had been plotting for maybe a decade. It lived up to expectations in every way. Great skiing, great hospitality. We couldn't have asked for more. Steve, our guide, was terrific. We knew that he would find challenging terrain for us, yet keep us safe. It didn't hurt... More

Everything was so well done. 8 of us had the whole lodge to ourselves. The food and service was great, the accommodations were perfect for us. And of course we got 4 feet of powder the day we arrived. I've been heliskiing before and the most important thing is the guides.. We had Steve and Neil and both were fun... More

As a group we have gone on 6 Heli trips in 4 locations. This was by FAR the best place to stay and ski for the money.
