Ski & Splitboard Overview
Ski & board the best terrain New Zealand has to offer!
Alpine Recreation offers ski touring and splitboarding trips and backcountry instruction courses in New Zealand's most spectacular winter wilderness locations. With two private, heated huts and a choice of many other venues, Alpine Recreation provides a wide range of touring options to cater for various ski and boarding abilities, fitness levels and personal objectives.
The glaciers in the Mount Cook and Westland National Parks offer New Zealand's most spectacular alpine ski touring/split-boarding and ski mountaineering terrain with multiple hut-based day trips and hut-to-hut options for experienced tourers. Our "Symphony on Skis" links all four of these major glaciers into one epic hut-to-hut expedition!
Come and explore New Zealand's winter playground, enjoy the warmth and ambience of one of our private mountain huts and the peace of mind of being guided by our enthusiastic and experienced IFMGA and NZMGA ski touring guides.
"Your company's history and then execution I would say is impossible for a competitor to replicate. You guys have an exceptional offer. When I think of continual improvement in my business there is so much I want to do, but I think with Alpine Recreation you will have to be careful to try and retain the current experience. Better may destroy the experience. But really there is nothing you could have done to improve things for me."
