April 2022 - Stayed at Tweedsmuir Lodge, and skied with Bella Coola Heli sports, all I can say is that I am honored to experience this special place! Spectacular views and runs. The guides and pilots were exceptional. Snow was deep and light (once you got to the lower runs was not as light, but that was the end of the run and the pickup zone). I always felt safe while still pushing my boundaries. The staff at the lodge were so nice and fun. Food and drinks were creative and delicious everyday. Had 4 beautiful blue bird days, perfect snow, one day with snow but still flew, and one down day, and took one day off as we were already over our vertical at over 130k. Not inexpensive, but highly recommend and worth the splurge , hope to go again!

Had a spectacular 5 day trip to Mystery Mountain Ranch. This is a working ranch that is off the grid. If you are looking for 5 star accomodations this is not the right lodge but I am not there for accom. Saying that the accoms were very homy and very comforable and very casual. I loved it...beds super comfy, sheets and towels and toiletries great.

The food - amazing. My only complaint was I eat what is in front of me and hence gained a few! Eating salmon and capers, homemade soup and sandwiches and warm cookies on the top of a mountain is pretty surreal. Breakfasts and dinners were gourmet.

The gear provided is all top notch.

The team was just great. All so very professional and so friendly. Loved spending time with all them - will be even better in a post Covid world!

The skiing tenure they have is spectacular. Best ski days of my life and that was due to long long vertical runs with pitch and unlimited visibility. If you know skiing in big mountains you know that each hour can be different than the last. You can get puked on snow or it can be drought. Safety conditions dictate often what you can and can't. I would say we got very lucky all in all and they guides and pilot did a tremendous job of finding us great runs as the days evolved.

Thank you Bella Coola team for giving our group the greatest ski experience in 22 years. Recommend without hestitation to anyone looking for a private heli-ski experience.

Bella-Coola Heli-Sports combines top service with enjoyable surroundings and a perfect and highly professional skiing experience in British Columbia. The skiing area leaves no wishes open and the guides know the best slopes to find.

Originally booked in Mystery, but changed short notice to Terra Nostra due to operational issues. It worked out fine. The lodge is very good, with excellent facilities, food and service. The guiding (Klemens and Ian) was really good - as we were 4 boarders we were perfectly accommodated with challenging tree terrain plus some fast and steeper alpine (no walking...). Had one down day but plenty to do (ask for Sparkles) and we appreciated the fresh snow afterwards. 24 hours from Powder to front door (London) was convenient too!

Bella Coola Heli Sports provided my friends and me the most amazing heli ski experience I have ever experienced. The snow and terrain was epic, and we skied over 64,000 vertical feet in four days! I will definitely recommend Bella Coola to my friends and family, and I will be back.
