Ive been riding for a very long time. I like steep, fast, deep, turns. I'm 40, I rode Kirkwood for 10 years almost daily, spent plenty time in the back country, been on a few Heli excursions as well, and Bella Coola Heli and da boys that run the show are some of the best in the industry. Guides Neil and Woody put us where we wanted to be. We had high expectations,...and coming from Hawaii (that's where I live now) we were in for a good $10k,...but it was a trip of a life time! Cant wait to do it again. We logged just under 90,000vertical in 4 days and we got bowls, steeps, even got some crazy landings that I have been waiting my whole life for! Aside from the incredible snowboarding,....including a 4,600 ft run and one run that was 12 minutes of consecutive riding,...no kidding. Amazing! We saw mountain goats, crevasses, distant slides, this is the real deal!! We even went to an incredible Indian ceremony and we spent a lot of time riding and not much time driving or getting to the Heli spot. Very efficient and conveinient. The Bella Coola area is some of the best in the world! Guys from Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Tahoe,....all come here for the goods. Although the food was good, and the beds were alright, the crew was great, and the whole operation in general was awesome!!!!! We didnt stay at the lodge, but did go and check it out,....very nice. If you can spend a little more,...go for it. Look,...if your looking for some freedom and want the goods,...these guys can get it for you, For whatever its worth, The Sherpas Cinema Crew was there when we were, if that tells you anything,.. check out the trailer to there upcoming flick "into the mind",..but..if your not radical, and if you want to just cruise and take it easy,...well they can do that too,...just make sure your not there when I am!!!!
Now, stop reading this and go already,...book your slot and go!!!..... Live a little:)
