This season at Methven Heli we will be celebrating 25 years of operation! With a strong La Nina situation the longrange prediction is for a cold winter with plenty of snow. There has been some concern following the recent Christchurch earthquake however business is normal for Methven and for guests travelling though Christchurch there are no disruptions or even evidence of the widespread damage that occurred in the central city and towards Lyttleton. We have all our regular guides coming back. At our Glenfalloch helipad Dietlind has been busy upgrading the accommodation and at our Lake Heron helipad Philip and Anne have built an upmarket backcountry hut where guests can be picked up by helicopter en route to the mountains.
Finally to celebrate 25 years the NZ$ dollar has dropped to offer the best exchange rate in years making our heliskiing the best value heliski product on the planet! (unless you are a kiwi but if this is the case we will take things into consideration).
