Canterbury Adventure

The Neon PomPom is a new concept for New Zealand offering a European style, full-service ski holiday.

The operators of the Neon Pom Pom are all experienced in the local area and have grown up skiing in the Canterbury highlands.

The aim of this package is to make it as relaxing and stress free as possible; just enjoy the ambience, the hospitality, the food, the new friendships and the great skiing at the famous Canterbury Club Fields.

Overview The Neon PomPom team is there to make your holiday more enjoyable, whatever that requires. You’ll be personally attended to by NPP throughout your stay with your own personal mountain guides and a chalet hostess.

Staying in the beautiful resort village of  Terrace Downs (15 mins from Methven), this is an ideal base to access all the great adventures that await you in the Canterbury highlands.

You will be staying in comfortable beautifully decked out chalet with everything you would expect; drying facilities, table tennis, SkyTv with home theatre, wifi and a hot tub.

Where you ski each day will be determined by weather and snow conditions along with your's and your groups abilities & desires. Ski fields in the area include Mt Hutt, Porters, Mt Cheeseman, Craigieburn, Broken River, Mount Olympus plus heli skiing with Methven Heliski.

A lovely deluxe chalet..

..NZ's best skiing...

...bring a group or join one!

Typical Itinerary

Arrival Day
On the first day you'll be picked you up in private 4WD vehicles from Christchurch Airport and whisked out to the Neon PomPom, 50 minutes away. There you'll be given a beer and invited to relax in the hot tub while your welcome dinner is prepared. After dinner, you can relax in your own private chalet, getting a good night's sleep for the following day.

Days in Between
In the morning, after a cooked breakfast and as many flat whites as you can drink, your driver/guide will load up the trucks and head off to one of six mountains (or heli skiing if that id your preference) where you'll be personally guided by your driver. Lunch will be taken up the hill before the afternoon ski session, after which we'll drive you back to the chalet for some snacks and a beer or mulled wine before your three-course dinner, drinks and bed.

Then you'll get up and do it all again for each day you are there, maybe trying a new mountain each day or doing something special like hot air ballooning, hunting or skydiving to break it up.

Departure Day

On the last day after breakfast, you'll be dropped off at the airport for your flight back to reality. Timings are completely flexible in order to work with your flights and schedules.

Heli ski options...

..find the best snow on the day...

...and your own private hot tub

Neon Pom Pom Lodge

The Neon Pom Pom Lodge at Terrace Downs is designed to be the ideal skiers' sanctuary. Everything you need, nothing you don't need.

Located at Terrace Downs Resort, it is ideally situated to easily access both the heliski base at Glenfalloch Station, along with no less than six local club field ski areas. This is an important consideration, as New Zealand weather can be unpredictable. Having the best non-heli off-piste skiing in New Zealand on your doorstep is a big reason that Canterbury is the go-to destination for those who take their skiing seriously.

The Lodge is centrally heated, has four generous bedrooms (which can be configured as king or twin rooms), a comfortable lounge with a gas fire, and Sky TV. There is also an open bar and gas-fired hot tub.

The purpose-built kitchen is where Hilary works her culinary magic. Daily cooked & continental breakfast, mountain snacks & refreshments, afternoon mulled wine & mountain platter, a daily three-course home-cooked dinner, beer, wine, aperitifs and non-alcoholic drinks are all inclusive!

It is all about providing the perfect environment to relax and swap stories about the day's skiing while resting up to do it all again the next day.

Deluxe twin or king rooms...

..a cosy fire to socialize around...

...and gourmet meals & wine
