HI

Just wanted to see if a anyone has been to Stellar Heli? Will be in BC (Nelson) in March 2022 and have a window of 15-24th March and was thinking of booking 3 days or so. Can't see many reviews. Anyone had an experience with them? Is mid to end of March pushing it for snow conditions? Is the terrain any good or baring avalanche conditions do you get access to any decent terrain? Otherwise could look at going with other operators but many places are booked out already.

Thanks

I've been to baldface lodge.
In December, one week before they officially opened.
There was a fuck tonne of snow.

I'd say March is just at the end of peak season.
So the snow will be as deep as it gets & it'll still be fucking dumpinup there.

So all though I've never been to the heli operation you mentioned.
I'd have to say it'll be mind blowing.

If you can go?
DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO GET THERE.

This isn't my vid but this was the trip I was on.
Baldface hadn't even opened yet & look how much so there is!!!!

TT

Can't comment on Stellar specifically, but unless it's a total freak year, there should be loads of snow mid-end of March.

Kaslo is an awesome little place (not far from where I live), with epic terrain / mountains. I'm guessing only 2 things could happen:
  1. You get an unusually warm / sunny spring and south facing slopes could be sun affected, or lower slopes have poor snow. But given you're in a helicopter, they can take you to north facing / high elevation slopes that still have good snow
  2. It's snowing too much, so the heli can't access high alpine terrain and you'll have to ride pow in the trees
Sounds like a no-brainer. Make sure you report back if you're able to go!
