We grew up in the mountains. Scaling the mountains around Arthurs Pass and the Craigieburn range. We get out, we explore and we challenge ourselves on our mountains. NZ is full of amazing back country, side country & ski touring. Porters has Crystal Valley, Cheeseman has Tarn basin, Broken River has Alans Basin, Graigieburn has Alans and Middle Basin, Temple has all of Temple! We could go on. It's so accessible.

Let us guide you through getting into side country or talk to us about our more extreme adventures. Whether you rare a seasoned pro, or starting out on your journey we have the knowledge and either have, or can source the latest and sfaest back country gear!
