Bella Coola Private and Semi Private Package
This is Bella Coola Heli Sports' most exclusive program: a private helicopter just for you and your friends. Everything is designed to guarantee operational flexibility and therefore maximize the chances of finding the best snow and the ultimate heliskiing and boarding holiday of your life. It's your experience... you decide!
The private heli experience is as good as it gets. It is just you and your friends, a helicopter, and the entire heli-skiing tenure! The machine, pilot and guide are at your beck and call for the week. There is no waiting time between runs, ever! You are always the first group down the slope. Ski until the last possible moment before the storm hits or it's time to head back down for dinner.
The program is based on flying time rather then a set amount of vertical. The advantages are that you and your group can decide how to use that time. Whether your goal is to explore new terrain, maximize your vertical, or look for the best snow, the choice is yours. You can use your flying time to stop at the oceanside hot springs for lunch and a soak and then back up for more heliskiing in the afternoon. You can fly far and wide: from the high peaks surrounding the lodge, to the ice caps in the south, and on to the fjords in the west, or you can even decide to sleep in and enjoy a late start.
The helicopter is an A-star B2 with room for four people and one guide. The program is perfect for a group of friends or a small family. Couples and smaller groups can also book the private heli experience, but the price is fixed for the group regardless of the number of participants. A one-week package has 8 hours of flying time included.
Semi-Private Heli Program
It is also possible to book the program as a semi-private heli experience with space for up to eight people. This provides most of the advantages of the private program, including the flexibility to fly far and wide in search of the best snow, but opens the door to a larger group of friends sharing the costs. Certainly, if there are 8 people in your group, there is no need to book two privates.
With the semi-private program, the helicopter shuttles between two groups of four skiers. The group has a total of 14 hours of flying time included (7 hours per load in the heli), and its own guide leads each group.
Note*: flying time is calculated based on when the pilot pulls power and only starts after your pick up at the lodge.
