Description

Join me on this amazing 9-day lodge-to-lodge heliboarding safari in the majestic Skeena and Coast Mountains in British Columbia. Discover some of the wildest and largest heliboarding and heliskiing areas in the world!

You will enjoy a once in a lifetime snowboarding or skiing adventure! This is the ultimate heliboarding safari if you want to see and do it all, or if you can’t decide on one of these two great locations. Please note I only take 3 groups of 4 people maximum in every tour.

This trip offers the option of exploring two world-class heliskiing destinations, joined for the first time by helicopter and board or skis. You will share 9 days riding between the glaciers and epic tree runs of Ripley Creek Inn in the Coast Mountains and the mythical terrain of the Bell 2 Lodge in the Skeenas. We slide over 65 kms from one lodge to the other.

Our guides usually guide on skis but most of them snowboard and all are aware of the terrain that riders are looking for.

Bell 2 Lodge is the perfect mix between a 5-star hotel and a rustic Canadian wild style. This faboulous lodge is located in a remote area in the Skeena Mountains, surrounded by breathtaking scenery. All rooms are very comfortable, with private bathroom and fireplaces. Also, if weather does not allow us to fly or conditions are not good, we can go snowshoeing and explore the spectacular surroundings.

The fantastic Ripley Creek Inn, in the small mining town of Stewart, is our second base of operations. It is located in the Coast Mountains, very close to the border with Alaska. The terrain around the Ripley Creek Inn  offers long runs on glaciers and some of the most epic tree runs you can find.

The rooms in the Rippley Creek Inn also have a private bathroom, telephone, TV and a queen size bed. We have our meals at The Bitter Creek Cafe, just across the street, where you will enjoy the most delicious seafood!

There are many options in Stewart if the weather or conditions are not good. We can go fishing on the Portland Canal or we can visit some historic museums, or just mix with the locals at some bar in Stewart.

So if you want to be part of this amazing 9-day adventure in British Columbia, just send me a request! Book your trip and get ready for a unique heliboarding safari trip? If you don’t have much time, this heliboarding lodge-to lodge tour is also available on a 7-day basis.
