Ski Touring with Adventure Consultants

Adventure Consultants provide backcountry ski guiding and ski mountaineering courses in the Southern Alps of New Zealand and around the globe.

 
 The best thing of all about this trip, is that the course operates from our innovative Expedition Base Camp tents that are set up in the Wye Creek Basin, high up in the snowline.  A short tour takes us directly to the surrounding peaks and bowls with vast amounts of untracked snow. The tents provide a cosy atmosphere to enjoy the evening meals and reflect on each days skiing before a well earned sleep. They have wooden floors, seats and gas heating.
