Complementing the heliskiing is the recently approved lift and snowcat serviced ski resort on Saddle Mountain. The development of this multifaceted mountainside resort will separate Mike Wiegele Heli Skiing from their competitors. The inclusion of Saddle Mountain will enable an offering unlike anywhere else in the world.
The vision is to develop a mountain retreat that caters to the pursuit of powder skiing. It will include a powder skiing academy, enable down-day skiing for heli-skiers and facilitate a range of lift serviced / heli-skiing packages for a wider spectrum of the high end skier marketplace.
An upper base area will contain a Village Core and ski to/ski from “heli- lots”. A lower base area will include a Base Lodge, 18 hole golf course and ski to/ski from, fairway view, single family estates.
At buildout, Saddle Mountain will have over 4,300 feet of lift serviced vertical skiing making it one of the biggest lift serviced mountains in North America. Once in place, Saddle Mountain will appreciably improve the sustained economic viability of Mike Wiegele Heli Skiing.
