Requirements: Backcountry skiing: You must have done an avalance course (I will complete one at the start of the trip). You must have an AT or tele set up with skins or be sufficantly fit to compensate. You must also have significant experience in snow camping.

Resort skiing: You must be an intermedite/advanced skiier.

I am making tentitive plans to spend the month of August skiing in New Zealand. I will probably be doing a combination of both resort and backcountry skiing. There are is a huge amount of places and slopes to be explored on skis in the south island but planning will probably somewhat last minuet depending on where the snow falls and weather conditions (although the cragieburn range looks pretty sweet).

So if you're interested in going skiing in NZ sometime in August let me know because I will hopefully be able to go on multiple trips and ski with different people throughout the month. I will also welcome trip ideas and advice.
