Private backcountry huts across four local ski areas leads to the ultimate skiing experience. Ski & ride NZ's true Backcountry. Endless untracked terrain on NZ's vast glaciated regions and from our Private Huts located at Black Peak and Pisa range near Wanaka - NZ's premier Ski and Snowboarding destination.

Every expedition, every adventure is different; a fresh challenge that beckons us back time and again.

10/10. These guys are a pleasure to work with. Super accomodating and the guides made everyone feel comfortable and safe on our avalanche course. We came away feeling equiped with the knowledge we need moving forward and also had a super fun time with this lot! Couldn’t recommend more.
