Celebrate love & stoke for the mountains at the Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival

February 10, 2016

Stellar Heliskiing is a proud supporter and sponsor of the Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival in Nelson, BC

For 10 years, the Kootenay Coldsmoke Powder Festival has gathered mountain lovers together in celebration of the Kootenays and its world famous snow. This year, Whitewater Ski Resort in Nelson, BC is hosting the fun during the weekend of February 19-21. As Whitewater’s official heliski partner, Stellar Heliskiing is stoked to be a supporter of the Festival and the named sponsor of the King and Queen of Coldsmoke.

The Coldsmoke Festival offers a huge selection of clinics, educational events, and competitions, as well as ample opportunities to drink beer and share your shredding tales. The clinics present a group of visiting instructors and guides ready to share their top tips to help skiers and riders of all levels have more fun on the ski hill and in the backcountry, while the socials feature a film and photo evening, after parties, and a social mingler.

The competitions are always a lot of fun, rewarding skill, creativity, and individual expression – and even the best costumes. Stellar Heliskiing is the named sponsor of the grand prize, the King and Queen of Coldsmoke, which is awarded to the top overall man and top woman across all four contests. The worthy winners will enjoy a day of heli skiing with Stellar.
