Bella Coola Heli Ski Safari Package
Lodge to Lodge - The ultimate in heli skiing exploration!
The most exclusive tour of them all and the ultimate in adventure skiing. This program is similar to the popular semi-private or private helicopter tours, but with a major twist. Rather then staying at just one lodge you will have the opportunity to heliski from two or more lodges and ski the entire length and breadth of our 10,700 sq/km (2.64 million acres) of terrain!
The Perfect Heli Skiing Journey
Maybe you have visited one of our locations, now you can visit two, on the same holiday! By combining the two tenures you will have the opportunity to ski and ride our total landmass of more then 1,070,000 hectares. This is 10,700 sq/km (4,180 sq/m) or if you prefer, 2.64 million acres of incredible terrain. This is as BIG as it comes, and is more area than you can ski in a lifetime.
The week starts in Bella Coola with 2-3 days of heliskiing while based at the Historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. Every morning the heli picks you up on the front lawn, flies you up to the snow for an unforgettable day in the mountains, then back down to the lodge for the night. Mid week, on a day chosen by your guide, you will transit to the second heli ski operation at Pantheon.
You will fly and ski your way 200 kilometres up the spine of the Coast Range, past stunning Ape Lake, the mighty Monarch Ice field, and the infamous Klinaklini River. These are areas that rarely see a visitors and there are still peaks and valleys that don't have names.
As evening arrives you will land at White Saddle Ranch, your home for the next couple of nights. This is a working cattle ranch situated on the Chilcotin Plateau in cowboy country, with authentic western hospitality and ambiance. The owners are true pioneers, having built the ranch and lived off the grid since the 1960's. To this day the ranch generates its own power and was only recently connected for telephone service. During March it's calving time. With luck, and if you are keen, you may have an opportunity to help out! During the summer months the ranch hosts an eclectic mix of mountain climbers and movie stars in search of untrammelled wilderness.
You will round out the week by heliskiing and exploring the terrain in and around our Pantheon zone. This includes skiing next to Mt. Waddington, at 13,160 feet (4,011 metres) the highest peak in British Columbia, and the province’s crown jewel. A number of Hollywood movies (K2, Kundun, 7 Years in Tibet) have filmed here because it looks Himalayan in scale.
If the possibility arises and the group is keen to keep exploring, there may also be an opportunity to stay at Bute Inlet Lodge on the shores of Bute Inlet for a night. This would complete a remarkable exploration of our entire permit area, from North to South and East to West. It would be like having the entire Swiss Alps to heliski just for you and your private group.
