Welcome to ski touring country. New Zealand is built for it with limitless mountains and rivers. Here in Methven Canterbury we have thousands of hectares to choose from.
We pick our touring locations based on skier ability and preferred terrain. Whether you want to 4×4 up Canterburys glacial braided rivers for a multi day excursion or fly in to remote areas for day trips, we have countless options to suit every need.
We ski wide open bowls to steep chutes! Our ski touring access is perfect for those who wish to progress their skills in the sport and in the mountains. For people new to the sport we focus on the art of ski touring and showing how to find the best and safest quality snow in the valley.
For people more experience we tackle steeper more remote mountains and focus on safe terrain travel choices, weather analysis and avalanche terrain. With our limitless mountains we have the perfect balance of skiable terrain and duration for any skier ability and fitness level.
