Day 1: Christchurch to Methven | Arrowsmith/Ragged Ranges/Palmer Ranges

Kia Ora and welcome to Christchurch!

Your tour starts bright and early with a 6am departure from your Christchurch accommodation. Before departure, you’ll be fuelling up with a fully cooked breakfast to get your body amped for an amazing day of heli skiing/boarding.

With just under 1.5 hours drive to the heli pad, your tour guide will make a scheduled stop at the rental store to collect any equipment you require. Today you will be heli skiing and boarding a vast mountainous area spanning three 3 ranges - The Arrowsmith, Ragged and Palmer Ranges.

Charge up your cameras, because this is footage you’ll be bragging to your mates about. Your heli guides know all the sweet spots, with over 200 named heli runs across the 3 mountain ranges, so there is plenty of terrain to suit your skiing/boarding ability. Tonight we will be staying at Methven Resort. You can take in the starry night sky while soaking in the hotels sought after hot pools.
