 UNLIMITED VERTICAL

 Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing pioneered unlimited vertical skiing. This means you pay the package rate only- unlike other operations, there are no additional charges for skiing more vertical feet. When compared to the rates at other heli ski operators , our rates are a little higher, but unlike the other operators you won’t find a ‘surprise’ addition of $1,000 to $2000 for vertical feet over their guarantee.

7 Day Package: Arrive and depart on Saturday noon; ski or board full days Sunday through Friday, plus Saturday morning.

5 Day Package: Arrive Saturday and depart on Thursday after skiing or boarding; or arrive on Sunday, depart Friday after skiing.

3 Day Package: Arrive Saturday, depart Tuesday after skiing or boarding; or arrive Tuesday, depart Friday after skiing or boarding.

Note: 3 and 5 day packages are for the deluxe program only. Each guest must participate in our safety briefing and training and must wear supplied avalanche transceiver while skiing and boarding.

TERRAIN SELECTION

Your guide chooses the day’s terrain based on weather conditions, snow quality and stability as well as the group’s skiing/boarding ability and flying conditions. The wide variety of terrain means that there is always a great place to ski and ride every day, whether you are an intermediate, advanced or expert snow rider.

Terrain for Intermediate to Advanced Skiers & Snow Boarders

Your guide will select a route that suits your ability and comfort level, and offers just the right amount of challenge. Depending on conditions, you often start with an open, moderate glacier run on the roof of the mountains or a gentle run through the trees. As the week proceeds, and your confidence increases you progress according to the group’s abilities. For a gentler introduction to the backcountry experience, Mike Wiegele offers snowcat skiing packages which will help you build confidence in the different types of terrain and snow conditions you may encounter.

Terrain for Expert Skiers and Boarders

When conditions allow, your guide will take advantage of the most exciting terrain. Your guide will lead you to the best possible snow, taking extra time to evaluate the snow stability before enjoying the challenge of the steeper runs.

Glacier Skiing & Boarding

For many people, the high alpine glaciers provide the most exciting skiing and riding experience of all. The freedom of carving hundreds of powder turns down a glacier surrounded by majestic snow covered peaks. When conditions allow, glacier skiing and riding is suitable for all skill levels.

Tree Skiing and Riding

The varied terrain, never ending challenge and the deep snow found in the trees provide an ultimate powder skiing experience. The very highest quality snow is found in the naturally spaced old growth forest where the loose powder is protected from wind and sun. We spend a great deal of our time within the forest glades and open spaces below the tree line, using the buddy system to increase safety.

Early Season Skiing and Riding

The first seven weeks of the season let you take advantage of our reduced early season rates. Enjoy pristine powder and first tracks at a value price.

Spring Skiing and Riding

In April, when the days are sunny and long the high alpine glaciers are perfect for snow riding. April also offers deep snow with good snowpack stability.

Daily Heliskiing

The 8 Peaks Daily Heli Skiing package offer an affordable option for those seeking the ultimate powder experience. The 3 and 5 run packages offer the opportunity to ski and ride 8 amazing peaks surrounding Blue River. All packages include safety equipment, powder ski/snowboard rental and a mountain lunch.

Non Skiing Packages

Non-skiers are welcome to experience the Heli Village Resort hospitality and experience cross country skiing, snowshoeing, climbing wall, massage and fitness centre facilities.
