First class, Professional and No-nonsense organisation. Have ridden with many Heli-ski operators around the world and these guys are up there with the best. I Rode some unbelievable lines in remote areas and would highly recommend these guys to anyone looking for long powder runs.

I have had the good fortune to try heliskiing in several countries and all of them have their special attactions. With Methven Heli there are many. Starting with the drive in which is one of the most scenic roads that you will ever see, arriving at Glenfalloch station, a working New Zealand sheep farm, then taking off into those beautiful mountains and not to forget the chocolate cake for lunch! The guiding is of the highst standard (as is the rest of the operation) and the skiing is unbeataben by anything in the Southern Hemisphere. If you really like skiing you should get there without further delay!

If you are in the Canterbury region of NZ and looking for a Heliski or Heliboarding experience, then look no further than Methven Heliski. I highly recommend Kevin and his team of Guides and Pilots after an absolutely fantastic introduction to Heli-Boarding in the nearby Arrowsmith Ranges. It was certainly a 'cracker' day, in perfect spring snow conditions, with a great group, tasty lunch, breath-taking scenery and the whole experience was conducted in a relaxed, no-fuss and highly professional manner. I am still 'grinning' now as I write this review. So do yourself a favour and contact Methven Heliski, I'm hooked and looking forward to catching up again for a return session or two next season.

Kevin and his team at Methven heliski are the best heli operation in New Zealand. Not only do they access the best terrain and snow conditions, but all their guides are very experienced. If you are in the Christchurch area you would be crazy to go anywhere else for an awesome heli experience.

If you are thinking about going heli skiing in New Zealand, I highly recommend going to the Christchurch area and dropping in to Kevin at Methven Heliski. They access the biggest mountains and the best snow in N.Z by far! The are the masters at finding the best snow around, even when it's not looking promising, they have never disappointed. With the most experienced guides and amazing chopper pilots, you can't go wrong..
