Join me for a spectacular trip heliboarding the incredible Mount Cook. Located in the Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, New Zealand‘s highest mountain is a place you’ll never forget.

This trip includes 5 epic runs (though more are available if you wish to). Away from the crowded Queenstown, this mountain offers New Zealand’s best snow! Besides, you’ll also get to enjoy the impressive landscape while having fun: the National Park is covered in glaciers, including the Tasman and Hooker. It is no surprise that a beautiful place like this was chosen for a movie venue: you might recognize it from “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring”.

I recommend this trip to intermediate snowboarders looking for a unique experience. Skiers are also welcome!

If you want a longer experience, there is also the option of extending the trip for two more days with a great discount!

If you are ready for an exciting adventure, book your trip now! Heliboarding is a must for all snowboard lovers and I would love to guide you in this incredible opportunity.

If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.

About the Guide


I grew up skiing in Hokkaido, the island of ‘Japow’ in Japan. I moved to New Zealand in 2001 and I live in Mount Cook village, where the centre of Southern Alps lies.

Since then I'm deeply in love with the natural environment that New Zealand can offer.

I'm an IFMGA-certified mountain guide and a member of New Zealand Mountain Guides Association. I guide all over the Southern Alps of NZ, especially rock climbing, alpine climbing, instruction courses in summer, heliskiing, ski touring, ice climbing in winter.

Please contact me if you are looking for an adventure in NZ both during the summer and during the winter.
