Black Diamond Safaris

Black Diamond Safaris was established in 1996 and is locally owned and operated in Methven, Canterbury. All the BDS guides work with the staff on the ski field to ensure the best and safest conditions on the day. Hunting down fresh snow is their  job so relax, take in the atmosphere and terrain while they cater to your New Zealand alpine adventure.


Clubbies Max Pack

This is the best way to be introduced to the club fields because one of the BDS guides maximises your experience - from blue runs, instruction for off-piste terrain, double black backcountry, exploring the highest peaks, or just finding fresh snow all day. A guide is the key to exploring the club fields mountainous terrain. These fields are not like your average resort.

If you like the look of this and would like to do more than 1 day, check out the multi-day (from 2 days) Snow Hunter tour.

Master the rope tow...

...earn a few turns...

...and go where few people go

Skiing / boarding ability

To get the most out of the backcountry skiing adventure, you should be a "strong intermediate" or above skier. However BDS can customise a tour for your group if you are beginners as some of the club field have good beginner facilities.


There is no accommodation with this package however BDS offers a multi-day package (from 2 days) called The Snow Hunter where there are 2 possible base-camps for the Snow Hunter Tour:

  1. Methven - which is a bit further to travel to the club fields each day however there is a good variety of restaurants & bars if nightlife is important to you and your group
  2. Castle Hill - staying in lodge-style accommodation in the foothills of the Club Fields

If you wish to stay in Methven you can choose from a variety of accommodation (which may vary the price of the tour).

BDS recommend the following properties....

Mt Taylor Lodge $$$

Abisco Lodge $$

Skibo BnB $$
