Arrowsmith Range Ski Touring

The Arrowsmith Range Ski Tour is a great introduction to multi-day high alpine ski touring. This is the only organised ski touring activity in the fantastic Arrowsmith Range of New Zealand's Canterbury high country.

Explore the Arrowsmith Range over 4 days

The 4-day Arrowsmith tours operate out of our Methven Heliskiing office. The mountain base is Cameron Hut, situated beneath the peak of Mount Arrowsmith
