Ski the Tasman Glacier | Mount Cook, New Zealand

Ski The Tasman is Alpine Guides' day skiing adventure on NZ’s longest glacier. Join us in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park for the highlight of your New Zealand ski holiday.

Your small group and professional mountain guide will fly in by ski plane for 2 runs on the mighty Tasman, and experience the true grandeur of the Southern Alps.

Extraordinary Skiing for Ordinary Skiers

Average/intermediate skiers can ski the Tasman Glacier. The skiing difficulty is easy to moderate, and the pace is relaxed. There is plenty to time to soak up the grandeur of the surroundings.

The 2 runs are gently-angled, with wide-open slopes. The grade is similar to “Blue" graded runs at NZ ski areas – but with natural snow, groomed only by mother nature.

Ski The Tasman is for skiers only.

Operating: 01 July to 30 September 2015
