Winter Adventure Tour

Our Winter Adventure Tour has access to thirteen ski fields spread over the South Islands mountainous spine, this allows consideration for the weather and snow conditions to maximise your snow experience, our guides have a great local knowledge on choosing the venue and finding that secret pow stash.

Fresh Descents Winter Adventure Tour is a customised tour in which you choose the length of the tour, what type of ski area you use and any other winter based activities to include

The Winter Adventure Tour is based at one of our many small rural towns in the wider Canterbury and Mackenzie regions.

The towns have three or four ski area's within an hours drive, our itinerary can change to allow for better conditions when the weather changes.

You don't just have to go skiing! We can arrange snowkiting, splitboarding, ice climbing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling the list is only limited by your imagination. All activities are through certified providers or professional mountain guides.


Lift Passes

A pass will be issued to you and we can get about the business of shredding

Some of our ski area's are known as Clubbies or club fields, which use 'nut crackers'

as the main form of lift access. The use of these will be fully instructed and practiced

before heading off for the day.

If you would prefer to use the tour to expand your snow sports ability, the commercially

run ski area's offer ski and snowboard lessons.

Rental equipment can be arranged for a additional cost. 

Four wheel drive transport will be used to access the ski fields, our mountain access

roads require high vehicle clearance, four wheel drive, ice chains, can be one lane and

all are gravel roads. This can prove to be an experience on its own! 



To keep the experience affordable, we use holiday houses at our host town or if available on field lodging. Sleeping bags are available for hire if needed.

All meals are included, our guides have a good level of cooking ability and can accommodate any dietary requirements within our menu.


Fresh Descents uses Broken River, Awakino, Craigieburn, Mt Olympus, Fox Peak, Hamner Springs, Mt Cheeseman, Mt Dobson, Mt Lyford, Porters, Roundhill, Temple Basin, Treble Cone, Cardrona and Ohau ski area's.

Prices start from $245 per person per day.
