Independent Mountain Guides

Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand

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.

From there, energetic skinning or snow shoeing will gain yet more elevation for some very select steep and deep options or mellow bowls for the uninitiated. Fine views await the back country traveller of Mt. Cook, Mt. Aspiring, Mt.Earnslaw and the lush valleys of Central Otago.

A day trip of this type will suit a strong intermediate skier/snowboarder to the expert who likes to venture into the back country but doesn't have the experience.
