Heli Skiing in Bella Coola for enRoute

Last winter I found myself just outside of Bella Coola, BC, at the Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, on a heli-skiing assignment for enRoute. Long story short- There was almost too much snow to even go skiing! Helicopter doors, once landed, could barely open do to the depth of the wintery white stuff. The avalanche danger was high and pockets of snow kept ripping out off the mountain sides. The guides were amazing, sheltering us from danger while still allowing for a good time. And, of course, when we couldn't fly, there was always fishing.
