CANTERBURY HELISKI ITINERARY
CANTERBURY HIGH COUNTRY
HELISKI (4-NIGHTS / 5-DAYS)
HELISKI (4-NIGHTS / 5-DAYS)
Rodd & Gunn is proud to present an exclusive Canterbury High Country Winter Experience involving 4 nights as private guests of High Peak Station. Experience the best heli-skiing New Zealand has to offer while enjoying some classic high-country hospitality and pursuits. With bigger mountains, longer runs, more snow and a refreshing lack of people to get in your way, heliskiing in the Canterbury Alps is New Zealand’s best kept snow secret. Located just one hour from Christchurch Airport, High Peak Station is ideally situated to experience Canterbury’s myriad skiing options while offering some authentic experiences for days when weather conditions are not ideal or you need to give the skiis a break.
This package is designed to take the work out of arranging your South Island ski trip by providing everything you need from the moment you land in Christchurch until we drop you back at the airport. This includes airport transfers, ski hire, lodging at luxury accommodation, private transfers to the heli-ski base each day... and incredible heliskiing.
Land in Christchurch and be met at the airport by one of our team who will transport you to the Station. On arrival you will be met by the Station host where you will enjoy a drink and discuss the schedule for the upcoming days.
DAY TWO & THREE
Classic 5-run heliski day:
This package would not exist if it weren’t for world-class heliskiing. Your guides will work hard to find the best snow conditions based on safety, your ability and what you want to ski. It’s not uncommon to ski thigh-deep powder and silky corn on the same run. July to mid-August generally brings colder powder snow conditions, while from mid-August into September you’re likely to find some incredible corn snow in the sun with plenty of powder usually available on shady aspects. Whatever the snow conditions, a day out in New Zealand’s big mountain terrain is always awesome.
Day of leisure to select one of the optional experiences below:
- High Peak Station 4WD tour experience with bush hut lunch, rifle range session and clay pigeon shooting
- Optional guided club field ski day at Mt Olympus
- Optional guided deer hunting experience, or
- Add another Classic 5-run heliski day (additional costs apply)
Following breakfast you will be transported back to Christchurch Airport for your departing flight.
Spend your nights in High Peak’s 140-year old heritage on-station lodging, which have been lovingly restored and appointed with everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay.
