The First and the Best!!

First turns of the 2008 season!


As the first heliskiing company getting clients out in the backcountry this year, we’ve begun our 2008 season with a fantastic bluebird powder day in the Central Arrowsmiths!


With 30-60 centimetres of storm snow received over the past few days, taking our base to 150 centimetres, conditions are safe and stable and today we got some great long, steep runs in on the Riescheck, Douglas and South Cameron Glaciers.


We’ll be heading back out tomorrow to do it all again so be sure to stay posted here for more great photos and details of what’s shaping up to be a spectacular season!


Methven Heliski’s comprehensive snow reports are updated daily and can be found at


Come and join Methven Heliski for your chance to get some of the best snow conditions available in the Southern Alps this early in the season.  Visit  for more information or contact us at to book!
