KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
• Most guests at Wiegele’s fly in on Saturday and depart a week later through Kelowna International Airport. Otherwise, it’s seven hours from Calgary, and six from Vancouver.
• This season, Wiegele’s permit area expanded by 300,000 acres, including some of the original terrain from its founding in Valemount. It means the outfit can now fly in three mountain ranges: the Monashee, Cariboo, and Rockies.
• No need to bring your own skis. Wiegele’s has a good selection of powder skis for demo.
• Though there are three- and five-day packages, stay the week if you can. Costs start at $4,713 for three days.
