Ski The Tasman

Ski New Zealand's longest glacier at the heart of the Southern Alps. Join us in Aoraki Mount Cook National Park for the highlight of your New Zealand ski holiday.

Ski The Tasman is a classic Kiwi skiing adventure operated by Alpine Guides (Aoraki) Ltd – New Zealand’s longest established mountain guiding company. We have been based in Mount Cook since 1966, and have guided Tasman Glacier skiing since the early 1970’s.

Every fine day, our expert qualified guides will take small groups of adventurous skiers on to the white vastness of the Tasman Glacier. Landing at 2.500 metres for the first of 2 breathtaking ski runs – 8 to 10 kilometres long.

Explore the Tasman Glacier

New Zealand’s longest glacier, at 27km, the Tasman offers an incredible backcountry ski experience, for skiers of almost all ability levels.

You will ski amongst glacial seracs, ice caves,  and fantastic natural ice sculptures beneath the amazing backdrop of New Zealand’s highest peaks.

Flying every fine day 01 July - 30 September

Extraordinary skiing for ordinary skiers

Skiers of 'average' ability can ski the Tasman Glacier. The terrain offers easy to moderate (blue graded runs) and the pace is relaxed. You will have plenty of time to soak up the grandeur of New Zealand’s highest mountains towering above.
