Day 2: Lake Tekapo to Wanaka | Ohau/Mt Dobson/Roundhill

Today we take you to Ohau, a remote ski field that can be found midway between Christchurch and Queenstown.

Ohau caters for all abilities, with snow ratings of 20% beginner, 50% intermediate and 30% advanced. From the highest point of 1825m, there is a 400m vertical fall to the base via ‘The Boulevard’, which is a wonderful ride for beginners on a safe, groomed trail as wide as a highway. Intermediates can choose the zig-zag ‘Luge’, and experts can push the limits on the ‘High Traverse’ and ‘Escalator’.

Ohau can offer exquisite dry powder snow and epic terrain – and will get you away from the tourist trail to experience an awesome range of ski fields.

Day 2 also has alternative field options in order to make sure that all experience levels are catered for, with Mount Dobson and Roundhill also offering amazing skiing and boarding.

In the evening we drive to Wanaka, ready to start Day 3 bright and early.
