Luxury Back Country Adventure

Independent Mountain Guides would like to introduce you to a luxury back country adventure.

Half Day Ski and/or Snowboard Adventure

This is for you if you are *new *to this way of exploring the backcountry beyond the ski area boundary. The terrain we choose is generally low angle, so avalanche hazard isn't an issue. The length of the runs are shorter than with a full day, so your fitness need only be moderate. This trip is for the intermediate skier or snowboarder. *Start time is 9am, finish time is 1.30pm.*

Full Day Ski and/or Snowboard Adventure

This is a special day spent skiing or snowboarding in the backcountry of Queenstown's majestic mountains. Access is via four wheel drive, cable car, or chair lift for sweat free elevation gain.
