Methven Heli Ski Packages

Standard Heli Ski Package – “Perfect” 5 Run Day
The standard heli skiing or heli boarding package offers 5 perfectly blissful runs. A day with Methven Heliski also includes the expert guiding, safety equipment, a scrummy picnic lunch, and return transfers between Methven and Glenfalloch. If you’re up for a complete blockbuster of a day, you can add extra runs (based on group consensus), which is charged according to vertical.

Fat skis will significantly increase your powder skiing enjoyment. If you don’t have your own fatties, powder skis can be hired from Big Al’s in Methven.

Private Packages
Going on a “standard” heli skiing day with Methven Heliski is amazing, but if you want an extraordinary experience and maximal vertical, feed your powder addiction with a private heli ski charter. With exclusive use of the helicopter, you can burn more turns and have the flexibility to roam with your guide.

Private heli skiing is based on a maximum ratio of 4 clients to 1 guide, although 2 guides may be assigned depending on the terrain and conditions. Pricing is based on the guiding but predominantly on the helicopter usage time.

Because heliskiing is a weather-dependent activity, pre-payment is not required.

We reserve the right to cancel heliskiing due to bad weather. This decision is normally made at 07:00 on the day of operation.

In this case a refund of 100% is due for any pre-paid clients, who are unable to re-book for a later date.

For cancellation by the guest (for reasons other than bad weather):

Cancellation by pre-paid clients up until 12 hours of operating will incur no cancellation fee. Cancellation should be made by phone or in person, not by email.

There will be a 50% charge for pre-paid clients who “no-show” and the weather is operable

Covid-19 - Book with Confidence

There is a zero cancellation fee policy and a full refund of any funds if cancellations are imposed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
