Located at the foot of the Southern Alps, Wanaka provides outstanding access and facilities to create a fantastic winter ski touring & backcountry snowboarding holiday.

With a choice of private backcountry huts, Aspiring Guides can provide a multi-day ski touring  experience that you will never forget.  

Don't forget glacier ski touring!  The ski mountaineering in New Zealand is famous the world over.  We have the luxury of being able to access the vast Glaciers of the Westland National Park as well as the eastern Tasman Glacier and its tributaries.

With three local ski areas to choose from, we can use lifts  to access backcountry terrain over a huge area.  Join one of our day trips to experience what backcountry ski & snowboard touring is all about.  Or if you are an expert skier, let our experienced guides show you around our more advanced terrain.

Aspiring Guides is closed for summer 2021 due to Covid-19 however we will be up and running again in winter 2022.
