Mike Wiegele Heli
& CAT Skiing

There are no chairlifts here. No crowds. Only 4,500 sq km (2,800 sq mi) of unspoiled, untracked mountains, glaciers and snow-covered forests with unlimited vertical lift waiting for you to explore via access from a Bell 212 helicopter. A bucket-list experience if ever there was one, right here in the heart of Blue River. First to pioneer the heli-skiing industry, Mike Wiegele chose Blue River as his staging ground for backcountry ski touring because, simply put, he felt there is no better snow in the world.

Fill your days conquering the mountains and your nights re-telling tales of your alpine escapades over gourmet dinners with newfound friends back at the lodge, then retire for the night in luxurious log-cabins, complete with crackling, warm fires and all the comforts of home.
