12 Days South Island Snow Odyssey

Queenstown to Christchurch

This is it: the ultimate guided snow trip of New Zealand that will take you to the finest South Island ski resorts and club fields! We have bundled the South Island’s ski and snowboard hotspots and hidden gems for you! On this twelve-day snow tour, our skilled snow guides will show you the slopes and the tow ropes.

This lengthy journey visits the most prominent ski fields in New Zealand before venturing off the beaten path to lesser-known club fields beloved by locals and professionals. We will explore eleven mountains, including The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Porters, Cardrona, Ohau, Treble Cone, Roundhill, Broken River, Mt Olympus/Temple Basin, and Craigieburn, as well as New Zealand’s most popular winter resorts, Queenstown, Wanaka, Christchurch, and Lake Tekapo.

With only four departures this season (from the end of July to the beginning of September), space is limited. Deposit just $99 to secure your reservation!

The Snow Odyssey is a combination of our Snow Safari and Snow Explorer trips, and is ideal for intermediate to experienced skiers/snowboarders due to the use of nutcrackers and rope tows to ascend a few slopes. However, this should not deter you; our skilled snow guides are available to assist you, and most people adjust to using these tools after only a few runs.

Price:  $3999 per person
Tour Duration: 12 days

Highlights Included:

Porters ski field – an off-piste heaven with one of the largest vertical drops in New Zealand; Craigieburn – a best-kept- secret among locals with wide open powder bowls and lofty narrow shoots; and ever-popular Queenstown – packed with more adrenaline-pumping activities than there are hours in the day to enjoy them.

We’ve got everything organised: your transport and transfers to the mountains, your accommodation, lift passes, breakfast, two dinners and your tow gear. If you want to add on any extras like equipment hire or accommodation upgrades, that’s easy! Just click the add-on options when you book the tour and we’ll sort it!

Beginners – our Snow Safari Tour is more suited to your needs, but keep this tour in mind for when you’ve reached intermediate level!
