Since 1970 A long history of making a difference

Mike Wiegele Heli-skiing with best skiing since 1970

The Mike Wiegele Way It’s who we are

Since 1970, Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing has shared what we believe is the best ski experience in the industry with our extended family of guests. But what sets us apart isn’t our terrain, our location or our facilities. It’s the man who started it all. And the personality he has put into everything we do. Mike Wiegele treats his guests, guides, and staff like family. It’s an environment that fosters mutual respect, inspires confidence on the mountain, and creates lasting bonds between guests and the people who bring your heli-skiing trip to life. It’s about more than skiing. That’s the Mike Wiegele way.

MOUNTAIN SAFETY Nothing is left to chance

Traveling safely in the mountains requires that our guides balance excitement and challenge with your safety and comfort. Guides meet each morning and evening in the Guides Haus - the heart of the operation. With the state of the art equipment, guides review field observations, snow pit data and remote weather station data feeds. They then choose the day's ski terrain based on snow stability analysis and predicted weather. You’re in good hands.

SKI SAFE

Mike Wiegele Heli-skiing Resort is home to the best powder skiing in Canada

OUR TERRAIN Powder Paradise

Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing is located in Blue River, BC, in the heart of the breathtaking open bowls and peaks of the Cariboo, Monashee and Rocky mountain ranges. Here, the warm air from the west meets the cold-dry air from the north and creates more than 10 metres of perfect powder each winter. Our northern latitude helps ensure we get the consistent cold weather needed for snow. With more than 1,200,00 acres of terrain and over 1,000 peaks, we can enjoy the majesty of the high alpine glaciers as well as the forested valley glades.

THE MACHINES Helicopters and Snowcat will get you there

Our experienced Yellowhead Helicopter pilots fly Bell 212 or Eurocopter A-Star helicopters, depending on the size of your group. When the machines aren’t flying, they’re in our heated hangar, where our team of talented engineers ensure we meet the industry’s highest maintenance and operating standards. Our Pistenbully 300 snowcat provides a comfortable alternative to helicopter skiing.

Don't ask us Our guests can't get enough

Robert Atkinson - Kate

Our family of four has spent a week at Mike Wiegele in each of the past three Christmas seasons and we're booked again this year. We started when my daughter had just turned 8 and my son was 10. They have really enjoyed the Kid's program. The 3 minute heli hop to the snow cat is a fun way to start their day and if they're really lucky they might get a few hours in the adult heli. My daughter first skied with the adults at 8 and they each took my seat for a day this past season and did great. It's hard to describe how different skiing deep powder is from regular resort skiing - I say it's like floating in pillow feathers. The biggest misconception people have is that heli-skiing is too hard. If you're a good skier, you'll be fine. MW is a bit like camp for adults - no driving, no cooking, no dishes, no cleaning - just skiing, eating, and optional activities like cross country skiing or working out. But it's really all about the fresh snow - and we always seem to have a lot of that!
