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 1,500,000 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.
