Garrett Newkirk

Ski Tech / Maintenance Manager

Former "semi-pro" snowboarder Garrett is a guest favourite!

A longtimer at Bella Coola Heli Sports, his cheery disposition makes him a guest favourite! Garrett is a true local, having been born and raised in Bella Coola. In his early 20’s he moved to Whistler where he pursued a “career” as a semi-pro snowboarder.

A serious injury prevented that dream from becoming a reality, so his father asked him to come back to Bella Coola and look for employment at a new heliskiing operation: Bella Coola Heli Sports!

In the summers he manages Tallheo Cannery B&B and Inner Coast Inlet Tours with his lovely wife Skye, who many of our regular guests might remember as she used to work at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge as well.
