Helicopter Skiing Days

April is a prime month in Bella Coola for the helicopter skiing business.  The snow pack is deep, there is often fresh snow overnight in the mountains which tend to generate their own weather systems and the days are sunnier and long.  The main challenge for the guides is to manage the avalanche risk and stay in the safest possible areas.  I'm sure they are rewarded with many great views of our peaks like this one this evening as they travel in amongst the rugged beauty of the Coast Mountains in April.  

With a high temperature of 11 C and a mix of sunny periods with the odd cell of very light sprinkles of rain it was a good day.  Grizzly
