Fly by Ski Plane or Helicopter to the top of the famous Tasman Glacier – New Zealand’s longest glacier, for the most iconic ski of the season in the magical alpine wilderness of Aoraki/Mount Cook with the regions only Net CarbonZero operator. 

Ski the Tasman operates 1 July – 31 Sept, when powder is more common and you can carve glistening tracks through sculptural terrain and striking ice features, feeling like you have the glacier all to yourself.

With the ability to be personalised to suit the needs of your group, Ski the Tasman is a great introduction to backcountry skiing with family & friends, as the ski terrain is moderate (blue runs) and the pace is relaxed. For this experience your group will need to bring your own ski clothing and equipment, ideally 100mm wide skis.

There are two guided ski runs included in the Ski The Tasman package. Mount Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters will fly the ski party to the top of the Tasman Glacier, to begin the first run, then deliver you to a different beginning site for the second run.

(Third runs available on the day pending conditions for an additional cost)

Require transport from Queenstown or Christchurch?

We are able to organise transport from Queenstown, Christchurch or other destinations for you and your group. Choose from a range of options – including self-drive, guided road transport or fly, if you are wanting the ultimate in luxury and to maximise your time.

INFANTS: The Civil Aviation Authority stipulates that we operate our aircraft in line with the manufacturers guidelines, one of these guidelines is that there is maximum number of passengers allowed on the aircraft, adult, child or infant. Therefore when an infant is booked on our flights and sits on the lap of a caregiver we are required to leave a seat free for this infant, thus the total maximum number of passengers remains the same. This is why you will see a charge for infants.
