For the first time in it's history, Shreducation is offering a Backcountry Camp at the world-famous Mike Wiegele Heli Skiing in Blue River, BC. The ultimate way to learn essential backcountry safety, skills, and technique in a safe and controlled setting. Campers will spend the week in a snowcat and helicopter with both professional guides and their coaches, exploring the backcountry terrain of the Cariboo and Monashee mountain ranges.
The snowcat component will take place on Saddle Mountain where campers will focus on a mix of pre-built freestyle features and freeriding in open bowls and glades. The heli ski days will take campers higher and further away, where they will ride terrain most people only dream of. The heli ski days will be spent learning essential backcountry safety skills from Mike Wiegele guides as well as backcountry jump building, more runs than they can handle and freeride skills from their coaches. Back at the resort, they will take in the amenities including climbing wall, fitness centre, stretch room, sauna, hot tub, and games room.
The camp is open to youth and parents both ski and snowboard, who are looking for the ultimate camp experience. Going back to a ski resort will never be the same!
