50 Years at Wiegele and RK Heliski

From the Rockies to the Monashees, Mike Wiegele has been wowing the ski world with 50 years of heli-skiing and luxe log cabin pampering. Tributes, storytelling and celebrations range from the release of his award-nominated film Call Me Crazy (wiegele.com/CallMeCrazy) to the return of the Powder 8 World Championships in early April. On the other side of the province, RK Heliski has morphed from Roger and Jenny Madson’s Radium Hot Springs Glacier Skiing, which started 50 years ago originally using STOL aircraft on skis, to the world’s number one day-heli-ski operation from its base at Panorama and powder playground in the Purcells. Maybe it’s time to give yourself a birthday present of heli-skiing.
