Overview

Ski The Tasman is an air-accessed adventure on to New Zealand’s longest glacier. Every fine winter day (July - September) Alpine Guides take small groups of skiers on this unique mountain journey. Operating only in Mount Cook National Park - there is nowhere else on Earth you can come on a daily ski plane-accessed ski day.If making turns amongst New Zealand's highest peaks isn’t enough, exploring incredible ice caves, seracs, and canyons makes Ski The Tasman truly unforgettable.
