Blue River

The Community of Blue River is located in the section of the Columbia Mountain System called the North Thompson River Valley. The Valley consists of the Monashee mountains on the east and the Cariboo mountains on the west. Valleys and creeks near Blue River divide the two mountain ranges. The community is situated at an elevation of 681 meters above sea level. Blue River is approximately half way between Vancouver and Edmonton (230 kilometers north of Kamloops and 212 kilometers south of Jasper). It has a population of approximately 260 residents.

Located in an area filled with lakes, rivers, streams, and forests, Blue River's economy is driven by forestry and tourism.

Winter and summer activities available in the area attract tourists from all over the world. Mike Wiegele's Helicopter Skiing has turned into a very successful business with a lodge and many chalets for accommodating his guests.

The community is a nice mixture of tradition and modernization. Throughout the community there is a sense of traditional, hometown values, but there is also the contrast of modernization with the expansion of Mike Wiegele's Helicopter Skiing Village.
