This incredible day combines the breath-taking views of flying over the Southern Alps and the Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park with the once-in-a-lifetime experience of actually skiing on the famous Tasman Glacier, New Zealand’s longest glacier.

These trips are open for Skiers and Boarders, and side adventures include visits to the ice caves/natural ice features during your ride down the glacier.

The ski runs are wide and long (8-10kms per run!) similar to blue runs, perfect for a family adventures and introduction to the back country.
