The top of the Tasman Glacier, the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers offer New Zealand's most spectacular alpine ski touring and ski mountaineering, with the "Symphony on Skis" ski traverse linking all three major glaciers. Further to the east of the Main Divide, the Two Thumb Range, above Lake Tekapo, offers non-glaciated and less serious terrain and a higher percentage of fine weather days - ideal for nordic ski touring and learning the skills required for off-piste and backcountry skiing. Let our experienced mountain and ski guides share their passion for ski touring and lead you safely to some amazing virgin snow runs, far from crowded pistes. Come to one of our private huts and enjoy warmth and Gemütlichkeit in the midst of the winter wilderness. Snowshoeing is also on offer for winter hikers wanting to explore the snowy wonderland of our high country.
