Officially it goes by another name, but locals call it Mountain Chicken Lake. Those two old lateral moraines extending into the electric turquoise water are pretty damn spectacular.

This large male grizzly was certainly one of the most memorable encounters from my recent time in the Great Bear Rainforest. It was clear he dominates this section of river, but his missing ear and torn lip indicate his dominance comes at a cost.

As @docleslie put it: staring into the gaping maw of climate history; 100,000 years in the making and a century to undo. The impressive scenery in @bellacoolahelisports tenure keeps blowing our minds. 🇨🇦❄️⛷ #bellacoola #britishcolumbia #skiing #glacier #explorebc #explorecanada

Photo by @stephenwilkes | The newest image in the Day to Night series is finally complete! This scene, photographed in British Columbia's Bella Coola, captures grizzly bears looking for food in their natural habitat during the salmon run. Due to climate change, the rivers in which the salmon travel are hotter and drier than ever before, leading to an increase in fish mortality and fewer fish for the bears to feed on. I plan to continue this project, capturing other threatened and endangered species, in the hope of creating awareness about the dangers of climate change and the effect of man on natural habitats. The Day to Night series began in 2009. These epic cityscapes and landscapes, portrayed from a fixed camera angle for up to 30 hours, capture fleeting moments of humanity and nature as light passes in front of his lens over the course of full day. Blending these images into a single photograph takes months to complete. To see more photos from my travels near and far, follow me @stephenwilkes. #DayToNight #StephenWilkes #Bellacoola #Grizzlybears #Dawntodusk #Canada #Landscape

This detail captured in Bella Coola shows a more playful side of the resident Grizzly. While I was photographing for over 36 hours I witnessed the subtle and not so subtle communication of these extraordinary animals. This experience has inspired me to continue to photograph and understand other endangered species, Day To Night. #DayToNight #BellaCoola #GrizzlyBears #Canada #Britishcolumbia #Landscape #Wildlife #Time #Mountains @HoldenLuntzGallery @Taschen @lexarmemory @BryceWolkowitz #lexarmemory @owcsolutions @tweedsmuirparklodge

Just a typical winter day at the Clayton Falls headpond – captured by our employee Slade. Have you visited our Clayton Falls recreation area? It’s the only ocean-front park in the Bella Coola area.

The newest image of the Day to Night series is finally complete! This scene, scouted near the @Tweedsmuirparklodge in Bella Coola, captures the grizzly bears looking for food in their natural habitat during the salmon run. Due to climate change, the rivers in which the salmon travel are hotter and drier than ever before, leading to an increased number of fish deaths and a lesser number of fish for the bears to feed on. I plan to continue this project capturing other threatened and endangered species, in the hope of creating awareness about the dangers of climate change and the effect of man on natural habitats. Please visit Holden Luntz Gallery, 332 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach, Florida, to see this image along with other Day to Night photographs.

So stoked to land the February cover of @akaskidormag with this snap of @chad.sayers from our trip to @bellacoolahelisports last spring. It was the very last shot of my winter season and it shows what skiing around these giant mountains is all about. This issue features a big story from Bella Coola with words by @docleslie and more photos of @chad.sayers & @marcuscaston Thanks to @akaskidormag for the continued support and @bellacoolahelisports for welcoming us! ⛷❄️ #åkaskidor #bellacoolahelisports #bellacoola

The Bella Coola Valley is my favorite place in B.C. Epic area, the perfect combination of ocean, mountain, and forest. The gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest.

Located by the Pacific Ocean in modern-day British Columbia, Bella Coola is the ancestral home of the great Nuxalk Nation. Bella Coola is a big, bold design for men, characterized by its square frame and a keyhole bridge, inspired by the classic Wellington-style frame. Featuring Ørgreen’s ground-breaking new technology, Bella Coola features rounded titanium edges, adding a soft and mat expression to the strong frame. Available in five elegant colors, from the subdued Mat Grape Juice to the racy Mat Vibrant Lemonade.

All this fine weather has enabled our guiding team and guests to poke deeper and deeper into our 2,640,000 acre tenure (i.e. permit area). Having such a big area gives us so many more options than operations with smaller tenures, especially when it hasn’t snowed all that much in recent weeks. Here’s an inspirational post from guide Andrew @acouncell from the other day: "Here @bellacoolahelisports I’ve skied more new runs in the last few days then in my entire heli career. Having a massive tenure helps but there are still lines between the lines. (The first photo is) a new one called “Air Sweden,” a steep and committing prow off the ridge, a real roller-coaster type entrance to a nice 900m run. (The second photo) is down in the Taleomy drainage, far from civilization and actually in the @TweedsmuirParkLodge tenure. We called this one “Moby Dick,” a 500m dream line surrounded by a half dozen other new lines we skied this day. Zoom in and see the tracks. @eaglelodgebc #explorebc #skibc #bcbackcountry #bellacoolahelisports #bellacoola" Did you see he said “half a dozen other new lines we skied this day”???!?! So they skied 7 new lines that day….yup, bigger is better! Keen to join us to explore these wicked mountains? There’s a few randowm spots left this winter, and we are already taking bookings for 2020 (hurry though, we already have many sold out weeks).

Sweet photo from today! And cool insight into a ski day with us from guide Paddy Jerome ( @canrockguides). He posted on his IG: "A little exploration today with fellow mountain guide @Klemenmali on Gas Gas in Twist Creek. We followed this run by skiing a new run at the headwaters of Twist Creek, digging a quick snow pit to get some info and then investigated some ski quality on another run. Just another day at @BellaCoolaHeliSports. What a rad place! 🙌 #coastmountains #heliskiing #glacier #bellacoola #powderskiing #snowdrought #mountainsports #alpineskiing

Lunch break in Scimitar Creek yesterday with Mystery Mountain guests and legendary mountain pilot Mike King telling lunch time stories and keeping us entertained with his countless tales of working in the high country. One of the best pilots I’ve ever flown with, not to mention he is a hell of a nice guy. Without people like him, heli-skiing is nothing but a great idea. Calm, cool and collected. #coastmountains #helipilots #bellacoola #heliskiing

Some footage today of skiing down the Otarosako Glacier here at Bella Coola heli sports. Video footage of fellow mountain guide Klemen Mali filming from the back of the group. A bit of a cheeky entrance getting through some wind hammered snow and getting over a bergshrund (large crevasse on a steep glaciated slope) but the snow past the entrance was unmolested by the wind or sun. #recycledpowder #bellacoola #heliskiing #mountainguide #powderskiing #glacier #coastmountains
