Classic PLUS

Early Season Heli-Skiing With A Free Night!

Program Description

December 22 - February 4th, 2023

Storm chasers unite! These early season programs feature a FREE night of meals and accommodation to provide a full additional ski day at the time of year when daylight hours are shorter and when storm activity tends to be more frequent.

Available as either a 4, 5, or 7 night option, these programs included a specific number of vertical feet per person to be used throughout your time in Bella Coola.

The amount of vertical feet included varies based on the duration of the program.

  1. Ability Level Strong Intermediate and above
  2. Group size 4 or 6 people (depending on lodge)
  3. Groups per heli 2 or 3 (depending on lodge)
  4. Season Early


Book a 4 or 5-night stay in late December, January or early February and we will add-on a free night of accommodation, including meals! Enjoy a longer window of opportunity to get the best heli-skiing of your life during our snowiest months!

The "Classic PLUS" program is basically the Classic Vertical program, but it includes an extra night, for free! For example, book a 4-night stay, which includes 57,000 vertical feet, and stay for a 5th night for free. There is no additional charge for the 5th night. This would give you 5 possible ski days (and includes the 4-night vertical amount of 57,000ft, and you can add on extra vertical)! Most importantly, this increases the chances that you will get that magical day up high and that you can rack up the package vertical.

Having a longer stay relieves the pressure of skiing every day; enjoy a well-deserved rest day, or take advantage of all the other non-heliskiing activities if it's snowing too heavily such as: fly-fishing, climb our Via Ferrata, cross-country skiing, paintball, a Valley tour or simply relax at the lodge. Enjoy a massage, soak in the hot-tub, play pool and ping pong or heaven forbid, connect to the WiFi and get some office work done.

Who should book?

Anyone that is an intermediate skier or better! We often receive big dumps of snow at this time of year, so if you're a 'storm chaser', this is the package for you! Additionally, this program is ideal if you would like to have 1 or 2 days off during your stay. It is also a good program if you have children who are strong skiers, but prefer not to ski every day.
