We are thrilled to welcome Tony Horton back to Blue River to add even more excitement to an already amazing week! - Mike Wiegele

Celeb fitness guru Tony Horton is confirmed to ring in the New Year at Health & Wellness Week at the legendary Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing Resort! Join the P90X® creator in Blue River, BC from January 5-12, 2013 for world class powder skiing, boarding, dining and exclusive fitness classes.

Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing and Tony are teaming up again for Health & Wellness Week to offer the ultimate heli-skiing and fitness experience. The program will include full and half day ski packages, exclusive workout sessions with Tony and even more fitness options like spin, stretch, yoga, meditation and Qi gong sessions. Guests can also cross-country ski, snowshoe and dog sled for the complete outdoor experience. Reiki, chiropractic, reflexology and post ski massage sessions are also offered at an additional charge.

Tony Horton states, "There is no better ski adventure in North America than a Mike Wiegele Heli Ski vacation. My experience last season was so good I'm coming back twice in 2013! Skiing well requires flexibility, quickness, stamina, explosive power, good technique and tons of vert. I'll help you with the first four and I'll let Mike and his incredible staff help you with the final two."

The Health & Wellness kitchen will serve up sensational, Tony-approved food offerings including a morning and afternoon smoothie bar that will help guests power through the day.

Guests will be serviced each day by a Bell 212 helicopter with 2 guides who will safely navigate through glaciers, open bowls, trees, and glades. With 1.2 million acres (more terrain than all North American ski resorts combined) there is no shortage of powder and run options. At the end of the day, guests can make their way to the Fitness Centre for après-ski workout sessions. For half-day packages, morning sessions are also available, and our full service spa will also be open for business. Look forward to a rejuvenating, exciting and healthy week.

In the words of Mike Wiegele, “Let’s go skiing!”
