Experience one of the original heli operators offering life-changing heli experiences and inviting you to join the Mike Wiegele family of guests.

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, averaging over 30 feet of perfect powder each winter. Mike Wiegele’s northern latitude helps ensure consistently cold weather creating amazing snow conditions. With more than 1,500,000 acres of terrain and over 1,000 peaks, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the majesty of Canada’s high alpine glaciers as well as the forested valley glades.

Since 1970, Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing has shared what they believe is the best ski experience in the industry. But what sets them apart isn’t the terrain, location or facilities, it’s the man who started it all and the personality he has put into everything they do. Guests, guides, and staff are treated like family. It’s an environment that fosters mutual respect, and inspires confidence on the mountain, creating 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.
