We combine the fun and adventure of an alpine off-piste experience with the ease and creature comforts of high-end ski resorts. Soho Basin is located in the Cardrona Valley, a 60-minute drive from Queenstown, a 40-minute drive from Wanaka or a helicopter ride takes around 10 mins. Once there, you’ll access our 264 hectares of skiable terrain from the comfort of a heated cabin atop our state-of-the-art snowcats. Once on your skis or board, you’ll experience wide open slopes and expansive vistas of the Southern Alps. With a huge variety of terrain at your feet, you can cruise down gentle slopes, navigate steep chutes, or anything in between.
