I can’t wait…I’m headed to New Zealand in a couple weeks to do some steep skiing, as well as attempt a coveted first descent from the summit of Mount Cook. The skiing in this area is amazing and huts, financed by the New Zealand Alpine Club litter the park on a first come, first serve basis.
Here is a picture of the Grand Plateau, with Mount Cook on the right. The current plan is to intially fly into the area and stay at the Grand Plateau Hut that sits on the far right side of the glacial basin. Heli or Cassna, it will definately be SICK!
