Our ‘camp’ feel ensures you have a good range of riders across varying skill levels to ride with and progress, a big point of difference over other ski packages in NZ. Whether you want to practice riding all-mountain, learn a new trick in the park or just meet other like-minded snowboarders, this tour packs it in to one incredible week that you’ll never forget.
On this tour we ride at Cardrona, Treble Cone, The Remarkables and Coronet Peak. Cardrona is also home to arguably the best terrain park set up in the southern hemisphere, with tons of pro riders from around the world using it as their southern hemisphere training ground! Coronet Peak and The Remarkables have terrain to suit every rider from mellow groomers, perfect park, bowls and chutes as well as world class facilities.
The tour kicks off in Queenstown where we collect you from the airport. On arrival we transfer you to our comfortable lodge style accommodation which is located just a short 5 minute walk from the centre of Queenstown. In the evening we head out for a group dinner in town to meet the crew over a good feed and a drink. With all 4 resorts ranging from 20 minutes to an hours drive away, Queenstown is the ultimate location to base our trip. All you need to worry about is getting out of bed and into our private transport, no waiting for buses or shuttles to the ski areas! The town itself is bustling in winter with great restaurants, bars, shops, cafes and everything you would expect from a world famous ski town.
Throughout the tour you’ll be riding with our Mint guide and host, plus you’ll spend a day riding with our certified snowboard coach at Cardrona so you can progress your snowboarding. Included in the itinerary is 1 ‘Activity Day’. Go Heli Boarding, check out the adrenaline activities or just take it easy, it’s up to you. We’ll be there to assist with any activities that you’d like check out. We also send all the boards off to Alta snowboard shop for a free wax and tune so we’re ready for hitting up the mountain the next day. We also get to take advantage of a VIP in-store shopping night at Alta where the guys are there to talk tech and offer some great deals across the store. After the tour has wrapped up we drop you back at Queenstown Airport for your return home.
