Help Us Celebrate Share Your Wiegele World Stories
After 50-years, there are a lot of great tales to share about the evolution of this great place we call Wiegele World and the many friendships that have been made. Every week during the 2019/2020 winter season, we invite guests to share their stories at the resort after the screening of "Call Me Crazy - The Legend of Mike Wiegele."

Live Online Mike Wiegele's Story
MWHS and Origin Outside have teamed up to deliver Mike’s story – a celebratory documentary of his lifelong dedication to the heli-skiing industry. This film features interviews from influential connections to Mike’s ski career and showcases the talent of today’s top freestyle skiers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Jennelle Yip, as well as pro snowboarder Austin Smith. Call Me Crazy is an official selection for the 2020 Kamloops Film Festival, accepted into the 2019 Whistler Film Festival, the 5 Point Adventure Film Festival, and the Rossland Film Festival. It received nominations for Best Storytelling at iF3 Montreal and Best Documentary at the Powder Awards. In December the film was also awarded the Vimeo Staff Pick of the Month.
