Liebig Range Backcountry Ski Touring

Backcountry ski touring in the ranges north-east of Lake Tekapo

The Liebig Range near Lake Tekapo is an exciting new backcountry skiing venue in the middle of an impressive landscape with a good variety of terrain. The mountain range is just east of the main Southern Alps and from the tops provides stunning views of Aoraki / Mount Cook and many more of New Zealand's 3000m peaks. Being close to the Main Divide, this area receives regular snow fall and has great skiing.

Add in a cosy, heated hut and you have the recipe for a great backcountry holiday!


Scheduled dates


Liebig Range Backcountry Ski Touring dates are scheduled on a case by case basis - please contact us with the dates you would like. Before you book please check hut and guide availability with us. We recommend that you settle guiding dates well in advance as guide availability during peak season is limited. Please allow extra time in case you are held up in the mountains due to weather.



Alpine Recreation provides alpine touring skis, poles, skins, avalanche transceivers, shovels and crampons. You need to bring your own alpine ski touring boots. A detailed equipment list will be sent at time of booking. Outdoor clothing and packs can also be provided at no extra cost if necessary
