Some fantastic images which illustrate well the incredible snow conditions we’ve had over the past week in Queenstown, Wanaka and Mount Cook. Our guide Hugh Barnard got these awesome shots while heliskiing on the Tyndall Glacier with the Whare Kea Boys Week. Stay tuned for more sick lines and photos coming soon! In the meantime, if you’ve already joined us this year, why not share your photos and videos with us, over on our Facebook page… where you can also keep up to date with our daily updates and snow reports.
The 2010 winter season in New Zealand is well underway now and it looks like we’re in for some fresh snow this week! With a deep base in the backcountry, endless untracked boot deep powder, clear skies and sunshine – we’ve been out heli skiing lots over the past two weeks. The terrain we have access to is extensive and covers mountain ranges in Queenstown, Wanaka and the Mount Cook region – for example the North and South Harris Mountains, the Mount Aspiring National park area, the North and South Buchanan Ranges and even glacier skiing on the Tyndall Glacier. There’s something for everyone out there, so if you are a first time heli skier or snowboarder, fear not! Our guides will take you to terrain suited to your level and find the best snow.
Check out this shot captured by one of our pilots, Grant Bisset, last week. One of our groups skiing past a huge frozen waterfall on Fog Peak in the North Harris Mountains with guide Chris Cochrane.
