      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Bush pilots to coast range

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for information on bush pilots who fly into the coast range from Vancouver island (eg white mantle range, silver throne, hamathko glacier, etc). If you know pilots that fly in from the mainland I'm definitely interested in their names etc but preference is for van isle departure. Also preference for plane over heli (familiar with 49north grizzly etc). Perhaps there are ski touring forums i should check with?  Thanks in advance!

The Waddington Guide by Serl lists Corilair and Island West Air as options for planes from Van Island. Corilair offers float planes while Island West Air offers float and wheeled planes. The guide was published in 2003 so I'm sure things have changed but hopefully that gives you a starting point...

Looks like IWA's website is no longer up so they may be closed down.

I bet all those pilots know each other so I would just call up someone and tell them what you're looking for.
