What our customers say

"This trip was absolutely amazing... I was sceptic about skiing in New Zealand because it is more known for it's beautiful landscapes and beaches, but New Zealand also got amazing snow! If you think about going to New Zealand you should definitely do it!"

"I'm an adventurous person, so I chose Haka Tours to ski more than one mountain! And guess what? It was the best decision ever!! Everyday a new adventure, everyday the feeling of different snow (probably the same snow, but it just felt different ;)) and everyday fun..."

Joe

"Heliski is an experience that you will have for a lifetime, especially in New Zealand! Even if you're just up in the heli, flying over the mountains you get goosebumps all over your body.. It's a feeling that you can't really describe, you have to feel it! I can recommend this trip :)"

Maria

Four Reasons New Zealand is a Skier and Snowboarder’s Paradise

01

Incredible powder in New Zealand

Fresh powder in New Zealand is in as much abundance as its rocky, mountainous landscape. A trip to this beautiful place will almost guarantee plenty of virgin snow for the avid backcountry enthusiast, with plenty on offer - albeit slightly hidden - within the boundaries for ski resort visitors. The islands’ proximity to the ocean brings a good amount of moisture to their weather systems, and this translates to huge dumps of soft, dry and fluffy powder in the winter months. The sweet spot of winter snow and bluebird days usually appear in mid-August to mid-September, when the temperature begins to warm but the snow stays cool. Some of the world’s most incredible powder is waiting for you in New Zealand.

02

Some of the world’s best terrain parks

With so many options for terrain parks in New Zealand, you might find your best freestyling comes out on your visit. Head to Cardrona for a good all-rounder terrain park. There’s something for everyone, beginners or pros, skiers or snowboarders. The difficulty level in these parks amps right up, real quick. The massive halfpipe in Cardrona is a hotspot for talented locals and world-class athletes, as are the big kickers and an endless amount of jibs, rails and verticals. New Zealand has some of the best terrain parks in the world. So if you’re a dedicated freestyle rider, get in touch with LUEX to find out more information.

03

Enjoy your snow holiday with charming, welcoming locals

None come friendlier than the Kiwis. The charming locals will ensure your visit is as warm as possible in their winter months. The down-to-earth people here might just be one of the best parts about your visit, with their humour, charm, and engagement just a few reasons you’ll find strangers impossible not to befriend. The hospitality in New Zealand is also first-class. In this country, you’ll be treated to the finest professional service of almost any mountain resort on the globe.

04

Incredible New Zealand culture

The culture and traditions of New Zealand will add colour to your ski trip. With the Mauri culture dating back tens of thousands of years, you’ll experience traditions here like nowhere else in the world. Traditional art includes impeccable carvings, weaving, tattoos and of course the very recognisable group dance performance - the Haka. These arts are practiced throughout the country and will be a thrill for you to take part in as a spectator or participant. New Zealand is an incredible country for many reasons - its culture is perhaps one of the biggest.
