Heli-Skiing Mountain Weather & Ski Report, BC, Canada: - Wiegele Heliskiing
Deep powder at Mike Wiegele Heliski, BC, Canada

Weather & Ski Report

Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing is located in Blue River, BC, in the heart of the massive Cariboo and Monashee mountain ranges, where the warm air from the west meets the cold, dry air from the North and creates more than 10 meters of perfect powder each winter. 

With more than 1,200,00 acres of ski terrain and over 1,000 peaks, guests can enjoy the majesty of the high alpine glaciers as well as the forested valley glades.

These readings are updated on an hourly basis direct from our remote weather stations at Mt. St. Anne which is located in the Cariboo Mountains at the treeline elevation of 6300ft/1900m

From time to time, due to the nature of the mountains, these instruments get iced-up and cease to function.  Accordingly, results may read as "n/a" or "X" or empty until maintenance has been completed.

Mountain Weather Station - Mike Wiegele Heliskiing

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. St. 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 7.00am.

Each day we heli-ski, the "Runs Skied Yesterday" is updated in the afternoon as requested by many of our loyal guests who monitor what type of terrain we skied.
