Another ski tour option for the Old Man Range is to carry on over the summit ridge and then down to the Nicholson Hut.
As reported to skitouring.co.nz …I thought I’d drop few pics of the next basin over to add to the trip. For some reason it stays really sheltered from the wind and is worth to check it out even when the front is wind blasted. The access is the same, just drop into Nichols hut from the top.
Please see the previous post Old Man Range- An early Season Tour – for access directions.
