Why Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing?
MWHS is situated right in the Town of Blue River, which is located on the Yellowhead Highway 5, halfway between Kamloops, BC and Jasper, AB.  The town and resort are a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts.  There are numerous hiking trails, a lake right in the town that's fantastic for swimming, and camping is also encouraged.  Myrtle Lake is close by and canoes can be rented at the Blue River Campground; you can hike or canoe to the lake and camp in a designated spot.  This is a highly recommended adventure- Myrtle Lake has THE best white sand beach you've seen outside the Caribbean! Mudd Lake, which is about a five minute drive outside of town, is also a great place to camp or go hiking.  In addition, you can volunteer for the fire department, plant and tend a garden at the Community Garden, go blueberry picking, or simply spend an evening with good friends around a campfire.  Other activities include taking in the local wildlife at the River Safari (think site-seeing on a jet boat), playing volleyball at the beach in town, playing baseball, and biking.
 
When you work at Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing you become part of a larger family of motivated people who thrive in a natural environment that promotes safe practice and good health.  What are you waiting for?
