    We loved our time snowboarding in New Zealand's South Island! Our group was mostly from Australia and had a mix of ability levels. The itinerary is fast-paced in the best way - we conquered 6 different ski fields in 7 days! The tour visited a mix of bigger and busier resorts (like The Remarkables and Mt Hutt) and smaller resorts with a club feel (like Ohau). Our guide, Chris, had great information about where to ski on each mountain according to your skill level and also talked to us about Maori culture. He went out of his way to get our group some Haka-branded Buffs which are the perfect souvenir from this trip! We loved the variety of the tour and extra stops like Tekapo Hot Springs and a day-off to rest our legs in Queenstown. Would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience as much skiing as possible in New Zealand's South Island!

    I have been on the snow tour with burto twice and both trips have been amazing! He makes a point of taking the group on family runs to include everyone and works to improve your ability. He also comes out with the tour group in the evenings which is going above and beyond his requirements as a tour guide and really makes a difference to the trip. He makes everyone feel comfortable and confident in the group so you leave as a group of friends rather than people that have done a tour together. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him as a tour guide!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • If there's no snow, what is the cancellation policy?

    There are quite a few different mountains you can go to while on tour, so we will definitely find you snow and best conditions each day. If for some reason while you are on tour the mountain conditions are not favourable and we can not find an alternative for that day, you will get a refund for the lift pass for that day.

  • I'd like to stay an extra night in Queenstown instead of returning to Christchurch is that possible?

    You can definitely choose to stay in Queenstown for the night after your tour instead of heading back to Christchurch. The accommodation is at Haka Lodge Queenstown, if you would like us to book a night of post tour accommodation there after your tour please let us know. This can be booked directly

    I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
