Mike Wiegele Snow Filled Helicopter Adventures

This is it. You’re going on a heli-skiing adventure. The thunderous sound of the helicopter blades mesmerizes you as you fly deeper into the rugged snow-covered wilderness. You spot your target destination as the chopper descends and you land gently on the slope. The ride of your life has only just begun.

Heli-skiing Adventures to Snow Heaven

As you step out of the helicopter you feel the sun warm your face. You look up to see vivid blue skies. Below lies unmarked, dry white powder, steep and deep and waiting for you. Crystal-fine snowflakes melt on your shoulders. You step into your skis, take a deep breath, pull on your goggles and dive forward into the pure white abyss. This is what it feels like to fly.

You’ll find seemingly endless terrain and pure powder with Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing, located in Blue River, BC.
