Our 6 day Ski Mountaineering & Snowboarding Course is based from a high mountain hut located in New Zealand's premier ski mountaineering and ski touring areas. Deep immersion in the Southern Alps amongst New Zealand's highest mountains and largest glaciers.
The focus of the Ski Mountaineering & Snowboarding Camp is movement through the mountains while learning fundamental ski mountaineering skills. The camp is about learning on the move and skiing big lines.
The trip starts from Queenstown. Depending on the weather forecast for the week, we will choose the location with the best conditions. This could be the Tasman or Murchison Glaciers, the Fox or Franz Joseph glaciers, or one of many other epic and world class ski mountaineering and ski touring locations. Once at the staging area we will fly into the mountains by ski plane or helicopter.
The focus of the week is to is to ski/board as much as possible. Along the way our guide will also help you build on your technique and skills in the mountains with skills workshops. These will include - avalanche rescue, terrain analysis, and decision making in the mountains. See below for further details on instruction topics.
