A DAY IN THE LIFE
As the sun creeps through your curtains, the smell of freshly cooked pancakes, bacon and eggs wafts through to your room. Time to fuel up for your 4th day heli-skiing in the world’s largest heli-ski tenure. You chat with your guides over coffee and breakfast about where you are aiming to ski, and which of the numerous first descents (never before skied runs) you are going to shoot for today. Time to get thinking of some run names to cement your place in history…
With your bags packed up, the lodge staff get to work on transporting them over to the new, private lodge by truck, as you take rather more exciting route from Bella Coola valley up to the your private heli ranch- via heli-ski!
From the stunning coastal ranges of your first lodge, you will travel via helicopter down the 200km spine of the Coast Mountains and towards your new lodge and skiing tenure. On the way you will ski through un-named passes, where nobody has ever skied before and lay claim to your own heli-ski legacy. You’ll ski deep powder down endless rolling glaciers and immense powder bowls to the backdrop of the tallest mountains in British Columbia. Time for lunch, where your host pulls out the famous snack bag as well as a lovingly prepared lunch from your lodge chef, complete with freshly made soup to keep you warmed up and raring to go. You chat with your guides about what you’d like to ski next – bowls, chutes or steeps. This week is full of tough choices.
With lunch packed away, it’s time to ski your way over to your new lodge – a quintessential Canadian Ranch, with nothing else for miles around.
As you finish yet another “best day ever” your chopper puts you down in front of the new living quarters. As your host meets you with fresh made après-snacks and a much appreciated glass of champagne, you are shown to your quarters, either in the main lodge or in the surrounding chalets. More tough decisions as you figure out whether skating on our private frozen lake or a game or billiards by the fire is on the agenda for tonight. Either way, you know the riverside Finnish sauna can’t be ignored tonight. Soon it’s time for another 3 course feast from your private chef – you could get used to this.
After dinner, an early night or a final glass to finish off the evening is the final hard decision to make. Then time to rest your head and dream of the untouched powder heaven waiting for you tomorrow.
