Every fan of skiing knows that Canada is undoubtedly one of the top spots for heli-skiing in the world. Some would even claim that Canada is the capital of deep-powder skiing and the birthplace of some of the best big mountain skiers. One of the places chartering a yacht is an absolute must is the Bella Coola First Nations area in British Columbia. The main reason for this, aside from the breathtakingly gorgeous nature and mountain views is the fact that the coastal mountain range tends to get more snow than the interior mountains of Canada, in addition to that the climate is also much less harsh making it more enjoyable for skiing.

If you travel south to the opposite end of the Americas, Patagonia’s winter splendor is there to be discovered.
