Ski/Snowboard the Tasman - Mt Cook Ski Planes

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

These trips are open to skiers and boarders, and side adventures include visits to the ice caves and natural ice features during your ride down the glacier.

The runs are wide and long (8-10km per run!) and are similar to blue runs; perfect for a family adventure and introduction to the back country.

Minimum age of 10 years is required for children.

Flight transfers, ski guide and safety equipment are all included on the trips. Lunches and ski gear can be ordered at additional cost with advance notice.

A great winter adventure awaits on the Tasman!
