Overview
Escape the crowds of Queenstown and get a taste of New Zealand’s best club fields on this five-day snow tour of the South Island. The Snow Explorer really is off-piste heaven – leave the beaten track behind and sample four epic mountains considered by locals as NZ’s best-kept-secrets: Porters, Broken River, Mt Olympus/Temple Basin and Craigieburn. Whilst these names may not ring a bell now, we guarantee by the end of your trip they will be the only thing you’ll want to talk about. Starting and ending in Christchurch, this tour best suits intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders as you’ll be using nutcrackers and rope tows to climb the slopes at most locations. But don’t let this put you off – our expert guides are on hand to help, and most people adjust to using these tools after just a couple of runs.
