A delegation of Chinese dignitaries and investors paid a visit to Mike Wiegele’s Helicopter Skiing Resort on Dec. 15 and 16.

The delegation was touring the North Thompson Valley from Barriere to Blue River, and were being escorted by members of Simpcw First Nation and the District of Barriere.

In Blue River the visitors were given a helicopter tour of various projects in the area with Mike Wiegele, members of his staff and the area’s TNRD rep Willow MacDonald.

The Chinese delegation said they were most impressed with the opportunities available in the North Thompson Valley at this time.
