Skiing in the New Zealand mountains requires that you have high quality equipment and clothing due to the extremes of weather we experience. Please ensure you look carefully at our equipment checklist. At the start of the trip your guide will go through your equipment and make sure that you have everything that you need for the trip.
Queenstown Mountain guides provides participants avalanche rescue equipment as part of the cost of the trip.
The cost of renting ski touring and splitboarding equipment is not included in the trip costs. Ski touring equipment and split boards can be hired from Small Planet Outdoors, 17 Shotover St, Queenstown For snowboarders Queenstown Mountain Guides rents snow shoes for $20 per day that can be used as an alternative to a split board setup.
It is important that you keep as close as possible to the equipment checklist. The focus is on ensuring that you have the equipment you need, but also on keeping your pack as light as possible.
