Guided Back-Country Skiing and snowboarding
Enjoy the mountains in winter safely on skis or snowboard. Guided ski tours and avalanche courses are available with Alpinism and Ski Wanaka, New Zealand
Back country skiing/snowboarding in New Zealand 's Southern Alps
To work in with the NZ weather systems, 6 to 7 days give you the best chance of experiencing the high alpine ski touring terrain in late winter-spring. We typically fly in and base ourselves at an alpine hut at around 2400 m altitude. The days are spent discovering vast glacial terrain, tour up and ski off easy peaks and passes, view serrac's and visit ice caves - all on a snow base of not just a few meters but HUNDREDS of meters. Crisp, clear air and incredibly white snow, winter in the high Southern Alps is a mountain photographers paradise with fantastic surface texture, wind sculptured snow, crystal clear atmosphere and amazing sunset colors.
Guided Ski Touring or snow boarding
During September and October, sometimes into November, depending on snowfall and conditions, Alpinism and Ski enjoy the late winter and spring time in the mountains. It is a marvelous time to discover the wondrous glaciated and wild mountains of the South Island. Join Gary to safely ski or snowboard in the backcountry. >>read more
