Meet your guide at our offices in Wanaka, gear check and last minute questions. From here it is a short drive to Wanaka Airport where we meet our helicopter. It is a gorgeous ride into the Pisa Range with great views of Mount Aspiring and the Southern Alps. The helicopter drops us at the door to the hut where we unload the food and suplies. This moderate terrain is the perfect chance to get used to your snowshoes and adjusting to equipment. After a day exploring the local hills we settle down to a big dinner, your favorite beverage and a phenomenal sunset.
