Explore the Tasman’s blue ice grottos, natural caves, and incredible formations, then link turns down New Zealand’s two longest ski runs. Skiing the Tasman Glacier is a classic Kiwi snow adventure, guided by Alpine Guides since the 1970s. We are Mount Cook's original and most experienced mountain and ski guiding company. Nobody knows the area better than us. Ordinary skiers can ski the extraordinary Tasman Glacier. Each line is a perfect green to blue grade ski run. The pace is relaxed, with plenty of time to take photos. We use helicopters to land at 2500 metres, for a 1000 metre descent. You get 2 runs of 8 to 10 km long. It’s ideal for intermediate or first-time off-piste skiers. Small group sizes (no crowds).
