Description

Check this heliskiing trip to a remote, untouched and really exciting area around Bell 2 Lodge, in the Skeena Mountains, British Columbia.

You have a wide variety of heliskiing options to choose from around Bell 2 Lodge, depending on your wishes and available time. We can offer you ski tours of different duration: from a 4-or-5-day trip to a full heliskiing week. It’s up to you!

Bell 2 Lodge is a modern heliski village, placed where there once was a service station for travelers on their way to Alaska and the Yukon. This resort is 360 km away from Smithers and offers the comforts of a first class hotel with a rustic touch of the Canadian wild. A maximum of 35 skiers stay here each week.

Regarding the ski terrain, you’ll find huge glaciated tracks, massive tree runs and everything in between. The choice is almost limitless.

Check-in at the lodge

When you arrive to the lodge from Smithers, we will have an informal welcome session. There, we will introduce you to the crew and go over the daily schedule.

Skiing and Boarding Days

Every day, before starting skiing, the Lead-Guide will give an update on the weather, snow conditions and the specific departure times for each group.

The first day, your guide will instruct you on the use and care of the electronic avalanche transceiver and ABS Airbag. Everyone will have an opportunity to practice doing a search. Afterwards, you will meet your pilot at the helicopter and have a helicopter safety briefing. The first groups in each helicopter generally depart the lodge at approximately 09.15 am every day.

Mini water bottles are provided in each helicopter. If you have a personal water bottle or hydration device, we encourage you to bring it. Lots of vertical makes for thirsty skiers and boarders.

Please Note: Skiing/riding on the last day of your tour generally ends at 3pm. We will do our best to ski or ride more if possible.

If weather conditions are unfavorable for flying, you can strap on a pair of snowshoes and explore the Bell Irving River Valley. With a little luck, you may spot a moose, wolf or other animals that frequent this area during the winter season.

Meals

A buffet breakfast is served daily at 8am. Lunch is a relaxed picnic-style affair of homemade soup, sandwiches, hot and cold drinks AND CHOCOLATE. Apres-ski snacks are served in the bar. Dinner is served at 7pm. A good selection of beer, wine and spirits are available.

Please get in contact with us if you are interested in discovering one of the best heliskiing terrains in the world, while enjoying the comfort of our Bell 2 Lodge. You won’t regret it!
