Fly over the Southern Alps to Mount Cook National Park from Queenstown for a legendary day amongst some of NZ's highest mountains! You'll heli ski or snowboard on five runs across six mountain ranges, with the longest being 4km in length and averaging 800 vertical metres.
The Aoraki Mount Cook National Park is home to some of the highest mountains and longest glaciers in the country, making it a haven for both skiers and snowboarders alike. Your day blanketed in snow begins with a scenic flight from Queenstown to Glentanner Airport, soaring above the surreal Southern Alps. Upon arrival, you will be run through a safety briefing before boarding the helicopter to some of NZ's highest helicopter landing areas. You'll board in groups of four per guide to ensure a safe and personalised experience. With over 200 runs across six mountain ranges, and with the longest runs being 4km in length averaging 800 vertical metres, there's terrain to suit all levels. Think cruisy power bowls and open faces to steep gnarly chutes. After completing five runs, you will descend back to Glentanner Airport and board the scenic flight back to Queenstown.
Please allow eight hours for this experience.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider.

We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in.

If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
