Queenstown luxury tour operator, Alpine Adventures, recently launched new private snow tours, including  a heli-ski and surf tour, where clients can ski and surf all in the same day.

Operating June to October, the privately guided tours deliver door-to-door service and unrivalled access to five local mountains — Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Treble Cone, Cardrona and Ohau.

“There aren’t many places in the world where you can ride your surfboard and snowboard or skis all in the same day,” Alpine Adventures’ owner and guide, Mark Dewsbery, said.

“Fiordland is one of the best places in the world where can you surf a fantastic and remote wave in the morning with a local expert, then ski the afternoon away on the mountains – a legendary adventure.

“We’re already experiencing more demand for personalised ski holidays in the top end of the market this season.

“With trans-Tasman flights on the rise and an increase in Queenstown direct flights from major Australian cities, we’re poised for a busy few months.”

Snow tours are ideal for up to four people and are personalised based on the client’s skillset and preferences as well as current snow, wind and weather conditions.
