“Blue River Summer Adventure”

Are you looking for a unique Mountain Experience this summer?

An experience that combines rugged unexplored mountain wilderness with pampered relaxation and exquisite food at Saddle Restaurant or at the Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing Resort or just simply Park your RV and stay at the Blue River Campground.

An experience where you set your own pace while learning about the environment as you explore and looking to share stories of discovery with like-minded nature mountain people. You can do all of this and more.  Blue River Summer Adventure caters to the ranked beginner as well as the seasoned mountain people.

Our guests vary widely in ability and interest, but with careful selection on the part of our guides, the mountains can offer a thrilling experience to everyone. Your guides keep in close touch with you throughout your stay, to ensure that we are meeting your expectations.




Our hiking groups, organized according to interest and abilities vary in size. The idea is to fit your mountain exploration within the boundaries of your fitness level and wishes.

The following will give you a general idea of how our guides determine hiking groups:

  • You are very active and enjoy strenuous, fast paced hiking

Your group consist of people who spend a lot of time in the mountains, are in great physical condition and enjoy challenging their physical and mental limits.

  • Your exercise regularly and want challenge yourself by hiking full days on varied terrain.

Your group consists of people who are sure-footed in rough terrain, may have some mountain hiking experience, are in very good physical condition and want to push themselves both physically and mentally: hiking over a pass, along ridges or reaching a peak.

  • You exercise less frequently and enjoy hiking for a full day, but at a more relaxed pace.

Your group includes people who may not have any mountain experience, but are keen to explore varied terrain at a slow pace and with an experienced guide.

  • You want to explore the mountains in a relaxed manner with an experienced guide.

Your group may include those who have little or no experience in the mountains, are less sure-footed in rough terrain and are more interested in learning about the environment, fauna and flora than reaching a peak or pass.

Safety:  “Safety is our Priority”

We are considering the weather, helicopter safety, terrain, abilities and wildlife. It is imperative that you always give full attention to your guide’s instructions. You and your guide are in a position of mutual trust. Your guides trust you to follow instructions and remain within the parameters they set.  Our Pilots and Guides want to get home safely at the end of each day ….. and with you!

Your adventure starts in the equipment room as you and your guide organize your gear and food. How light can you go?
