A ski-obsessed Austrian, with a vision no one else believed in, translates a lifetime of innovation into a legendary reputation as one of the most influential figures in snowsports.
Call Me Crazy tells the story of how a young Austrian with little more than a dream and a love for skiing, became one of the most influential ski pioneers in Canada and the founder of North American’s preeminent heli-skiing operation. Mike’s commitment to his vision has enabled ski enthusiasts and die-hard powder-hounds to access some of the most sought-after snow in the world. His contributions don’t end there; Wiegele has set the standard for avalanche safety in the mechanized ski industry, influenced ground-breaking changes in ski technology, and continues to inspire future generations of skiers, snowboarders, and guides.

- Mike Wiegele
“HE WAS ALWAYS SORT OF A DREAMER. HE WANTED TO GO ON THE MOUNTAIN AND SKI, AND THAT WAS HIS DREAM.”
