Meet your guide at our offices in downtown Wanaka, gear check and last minute questions. From here it is a 12 minute drive to Wanaka airport where we load the helicopter for the exciting days ahead. The helicopter drops us at over 2000m before carrying on to drop our gear at the hut. From the summit we can see Mnt. Aspiring as well as Mnt. Cook and the chain of the Southern Alps. Today’s tour takes us north to Lake McKay, this moderate terrain is the perfect chance to get used to your snowshoes and adjusting to equipment. Back at the hut we settle down to a big dinner, your favorite beverage and a phenomenal sunset.
