At Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing, we definitely don’t like saying goodbye to heli-skiing season, however when we do… we prefer to send it out with a BANG!

Spring Fling & Steep Camp week (April 1 to 8) at MWHS, is traditionally the party that puts a climatic cap on the winter festivities in Blue River. During these 7-days, every evening offers reason for a party in the Main Lodge.
