How Do We Do It?
Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing utilizes three sophisticated remote weather stations; 2 strategically located in the Cariboo Mountain Ranges as well as a base weather station in the valley at the Blue River airport. Each day starting at 5:30am data that has been collected from these weather stations is analyzed by the guides. This data helps determine the best terrain for the day’s skiing plan and continues to assist throughout the day for terrain and run selection.
The Mt. St. Anne station is located at 6,300 ft/ 1,900 m which gives an accurate analysis of the conditions at Tree Line. There are 2 stations at Mt Saint Anne, The station in the St Anne meadow measures the amount of precipitation, new snow, snow base and snow temperatures. The station at Mt St Anne Ridge measures the wind speed, direction, temperature and humidity on a tree-line ridge-top. (both located at 6300 ft/1900 m)
These sites are equipped with technical instruments that include an ultrasonic snow depth device, a temperature and relative humidity sensors as well as wind speed and direction anemometer. The information gathered by these tools at these specific locations is then transmitted to our Weather Office located in the Guides Haus. These instruments are subject to the elements of wind, cold temperatures and heavy snow so sometimes will fail to read.
We transmit some of this data directly to our website. This “live” data is automatically updated every hour and includes the Snowbase, Temperature, Humidity, and Wind speed data.
On a daily basis the Snowfall readings (24hr, 48hr, 7 day) and the Forecast/Extended Forecast are examined at 6.00am by our Guides and uploaded to our website at 8.00am.
This is also when we post the Runs Skied Yesterday; as requested by many of our loyal guests who monitor what type of terrain we skied. The runs can then be viewed on our MWHS Google Earth.
