The best thing when it comes to backcountry touring - getting away from the crowds
Located at the foot of the Southern Alps, Wanaka provides outstanding access and facilities to create a fantastic winter ski touring & backcountry snowboarding holiday.
With a choice of private backcountry huts, Aspiring Guides can provide a multi-day ski touring experience that you will never forget.
Don't forget glacier ski touring! The ski mountaineering in New Zealand is famous the world over. We have the luxury of being able to access the vast Glaciers of the Westland National Park as well as the eastern Tasman Glacier and its tributaries.
Heading into the backcountry on your own? Check out our avalanche awareness courses. From entry level to advanced we've got you covered with our Mountain Safety Council accredited courses.
With four local ski areas to choose from, we can use skifield roads and lifts to access backcountry terrain over a huge area. Join one of our day courses to experience what backcountry ski & snowboard touring is all about. Or if you are an expert skier, let our experienced guides show you around our more advanced terrain on one of our day tours.
