Environmentalists will be happy to know that the tour operators running these extreme sports are turning their attention to responsible practices. More and more heli and cat ski guides are considering their carbon footprint and being mindful of Leave No Trace principles. Northern Escape Heli-Skiing in Terrace, BC is working towards a carbon-neutral operation, and have created a Wildlife Mitigation Strategy. Bella Coola Heli-Skiing is similarly purchasing carbon offsets and offers customers an option to make their entire trip carbon-neutral, and Big Red Cats in Rossland, BC is using bio-diesel fuel and has installed a separator to prevent hydraulic fluid from seeping into the ground.
