The Classic 2 Run Package

The "classic" Ski the Tasman package includes 2 guided scenic ski runs, 3 scenic flights, and a scenic picnic lunch (plus scenery all around!). 

The tour meets at Mount Cook Airport at 08:45. After fitting gear and a safety brief you will be quickly underway on this incredible adventure ski day. Once on the snow the aircraft departs and you are immersed in the natural quiet of the mountains, amongst New Zealand's highest peaks. The 2 longest ski runs in the Southern Hemisphere (outside Antarctica) await your fresh tracks.

The package also includes safety equipment (avalanche transceivers) and return transfers to your accommodation at Mt Cook (if required).

Ski rentals (and boots & poles) are also available for an additional cost. Minimum age of participants is 10 years old so the whole family can join in!

The tours operate daily from 1st July to 30th September, weather permitting.

If you wish to stay in the area, you can organise your own Mt Cook accommodation if you wish, with the Hermitage Hotel Mt Cook being the jewel in the crown of the village.

If you are staying in Queenstown and have a group of at least 4, Ski The Tasman can arrange a package including same-day return flights from Queenstown/Mt Cook.

Here is a short video showing some of what to expect for this incredible day out.....
