Ski touring is a dangerous sport. Anyone undertaking this sport does so at thier own risk and carries all the associated responsibilities.
The information provided here is an informal record of ski touring in NZ.
The skills required for back-country skiing include strong off piste skiing skills, avalanche awareness, route finding and in some cases mountaineering skills.
Access is often a sensitive issue. Whilst this site aims to provide accurate information about access, it remains the ultimate responsibility of the user to ensure the appropriate permissions are sought and rules and/or regulations are obeyed. The Department of Conservation website is a great resource for public access information and for back-country huts.
