Itinerary
Day 01
Mt Arrowsmith

Christchurch - Methven

Hotel: Methven Resort or similar

Kia Ora and welcome to Christchurch!

Your tour starts bright and early from Hotel Rydges Latimer. Before departure, you’ll be fuelling up with a fully cooked breakfast to get your body amped for an amazing day of heli skiing/boarding.

With just under 1.5 hours drive to the helipad, your tour guide will make a scheduled stop at the rental store to collect any equipment you require. Today you will be heli skiing and boarding a vast mountainous area spanning three 3 ranges - The Arrowsmith, Ragged and Palmer Ranges.

Charge up your cameras, because this is footage you’ll be bragging to your mates about. Your heli guides know all the sweet spots, with over 200 named heli runs across the 3 mountain ranges, so there is plenty of terrain to suit your skiing/boarding ability.

Tonight we will be staying at Methven Resort. You can take in the starry night sky while soaking in the hotels sought after hot pools.

Tips:
You would be informed of the accommodation information once your reservation is confirmed.

Day 02
Mount Hutt

Methven - Mt Hutt - Aoraki Mt Cook Village

Hotel: Mt Cook Lodge or similar

Today you rest your heli legs and venture up Mt Hutt.

Located in the Southern Alps, Canterbury’s Mt Hutt Ski Area receives some of the lightest and driest powder in Australasia. Mt Hutt caters for everyone, with great terrain covering 365 skiable hectares. Accessing to terrain is quick on the 6 seater chairlift, with some light traversing to get to the black diamond runs.

For those seeking adrenaline inducing goodness, Towers, South Face, Montesumas will deliver. With views reaching out across the quilted landscape to the ocean, or back out across the Southern Alps, photo backdrops are in abundance.

If the heli bug has taken a bite out of you, there’s the heli-upgrade option for you. This will be with the same company we heli-skiied with yesterday and can be booked through your Tour Guide the night before or this morning (weather and availability dependent).

In the evening we drive to Aoraki Mt Cook Village so we can rise early for Day 3.

Tips:
Day 2 will be the heli day if there is bad weather on Day 1.
Day 03
Mount Cook National Park

Mt Cook

Hotel: Mt Cook Lodge or similar

Waking up in the shadow of the most prominent mountain in New Zealand, your day of heli riding is going to be one for the brag book.

Today you’re spoilt for choice. Mount Cook heliski region is the largest heliski area in NZ, operating among the highest peaks in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park, covering 6 mountain ranges across to the Ben Ohaus, that tower above the shores of azure Lake Pukaki. Mount Cook heli has the highest landings, longest runs, greatest snow accumulation and most consistent conditions of any backcountry area in New Zealand.

No matter your experience there will be terrain to suit your ability, from mellow open powder bowls to challenging descents - today will not disappoint.

As the sunsets over Aoraki Mt Cook, we can relax and talk about today’s adventures over dinner at the Mt Cook Lodge restaurant.

Visiting Attractions

Day 04
Wanaka

Mt Cook - Ohau - Wanaka

Hotel: Local Hostel or similar

Today we you can kick back and be driven through the scenic views that this part of New Zealand has to offer. If the snow gods have blessed us with a fresh dose of powder we will stop in at Ohau snow fields for a half day of skiing.

Ohau is the hidden gem of the Southern Alps. With no crowds, at times it can feel like you have the mountain to yourself. There are some groomed runs, but most of the runs are off piste. With a good mix of learner and intermediate and expert runs, but those who are keen to earn their turns can hike up to the ‘Ridge Run’ for some unforgettable views and riding.

After our time riding at Ohau we drive through to Wanaka where we stay the night, ready for another amazing day of heli skiing.

Tips:
Day 4 will be the heli day if there is bad weather on Day 3.

Day 05
Wanaka

Wanaka

Hotel: Local Hostel or similar

Rise and shine! We hope you recharged your bodies and the camera batteries last night because today is going to be another amazing day of heli skiing/boarding.

Heading into the mountainous areas around Wanaka and the surrounding lakes, we'll have access to over 8,500 square metres of terrain spreading across 11 different mountain ranges - this is over 3000 times the size of Coronet Peak! You'll have hit the money load of run choices. With your legs and bodies now conditioned to riding virgin snow, your experienced heli guides will be taking you to some of their favourite spots.

Tonight we’re mixing it up with dinner at the Mexican Restaurant in Wanaka. What better way to unwind from a day of epic heli, than with a margarita or 2, great banter and showing off those heli pics from the day.

Visiting Attractions

Day 06
Queenstown

Wanaka - Treble Cone - Queenstown

Hotel: Haka Lodge Queenstown or similar

Treble Cone lies within the heart of the Southern Alps. The views from TC across majestic Lake Wanaka are astounding.

Treble cone is the largest ski area in the South Island, and is renowned for its terrain and dry powder. Because of it’s proximity to the Southern Alps it has reliable weather and snow conditions and it is protected from the bitterly cold southerly winds. Treble Cone accesses some of New Zealand’s best back country terrain.

Today you will be joining professional guides for an incredible day of backcountry skiing/snowboarding beyond the boundaries of Treble Cone ski area. You can reflect on your unforgettable day of back county touring as we travel over to Queenstown for the last night of the tour.

Tips:
Day 6 will be the heli day if there is bad weather on Day 5.

Day 07
Queenstown

Queenstown

We'll spend the last day of the tour in Queenstown - the adventure capital of the world. The only problem you’ll have today is deciding what to do first.

You can add another day of heli skiing to your adventure or make a dent in your bucket list with skydiving, bungy jumping, jet boating, skiing Coronet Peak or The Remarkables…the list is long and the choice is yours!

If you want to wait and see how you feel when on tour, all activities and experiences can be booked through your Tour Guide.
