12-Day Snow Odyssey Tour

12-Day Snow Odyssey Tour

This is the ultimate snow holiday for the ultimate powder hound! Visiting 11 mountains over 12 days, you’ll sample New Zealand’s most popular ski fields before heading off the beaten track to lesser known club fields loved by locals and pros alike. Highlights include: Porters ski field – an off-piste heaven with one of the largest vertical drops in New Zealand; Craigieburn – a best-kept-secret amongst 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. The Snow Odyssey is a combination of our Snow Safari and Snow Explorer tours and is best suited for intermediate to advanced skiers/snowboarders as you’ll be using nutcrackers and rope tows to climb a handful of the slopes. Never heard of a nutcracker? Don’t let this put you off! Most people adjust to using these tools after just a couple of runs and our guides are on hand to help.

 A wonderful day tour to Arthurs Pass which includes a train journey on one of the worlds famous train journeys, a visit to the National Park including some short walks to see the mountain flowers and incredible mosses in this high rainfall area. A delicious 2 course homemade picnic, scenic location and much grown in my Organic garden glasshouse. I bake Wholemeal Walnut bread and a selection of fillings and dependent on season make homemade soup or dessert.Lots of photo stops and short walks on the return via Highway 73 passing many beautiful lakes & limestone formations. As an option can add on jet boat trip on Waimakariri River or a farm visit including sheep dogs and shearing demonstration followed by a homemade afternoon tea in the Woolshed. Tour leaves at 7.45am and returns at 5.15pm. Central City pick ups ok. Tour is aimed at small numbers. Happy to tailor it to guests wishes and although not always private usually caters for family groups.Can charter and drive a bus if needed.
