Queenstown Mountain Guides Helicopter Ski Touring & Snowboarding Camps takes you by helicopter into the best ski touring locations in the Queenstown & Wanaka area.
Locations include the Harris Mountains, the Humbolt, the Richardson, and the Buchanan mountain ranges. These areas can only be easily accessed by helicopter. The terrain, scenery, and skiing are epic. We have the flexibility to choose the best location depending on snow and weather conditions for the duration of the trip.
Included in the Helicopter Accessed Ski Touring Camp are two helicopter flights so we can access the best ski touring and split boarding terrain and then fly out at the end of the trip.
This program gives us access to the best terrain in Queenstown and Wanaka backcountry. The areas we can visit include the Humbolt and the Richardson mountain ranges (above Glenorcy), the Harris Mountains between Queenstown and Wanaka and the Buchanan mountain range near Mt Aspiring. We also have terrain in the Mt Cook, Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks.
Our Helicopter Ski Touring & Snowboarding Camps are based from light weight expedition style tent camps. The location of the camp will depend on current conditions and the forecast for the trip. Mountain conditions, snow quality, and weather are constantly changing.

"The scenery, terrain, and snow were incredible. Skiing powder while looking over a turquoise blue lake Wakatipu with the mountains of New Zealand's Southern alps beyond is an experience that I will never forget..."
