We can access a variety of terrain to suit your skills and travel further into the mountains. We can select runs suited to the group fitness, ski ability and avalanche conditions of the day. Ski touring skis and split boards or snowshoes lets us gain height. That gives an opportunity to assess the snowpack before transitioning to the descent. Then we enjoy the spoils of our labour: fresh untracked powder or smooth spring snow.
Journey to an alpine hut and stay the night above the snowline or among the giant glaciers of New Zealand’s high glacial plateaus. Watch the sun set into the ocean while skiing down the glacier to the hut below, in the last of the day’s light. These are some of the experiences ski touring offers.
