Sample Itinerary

Day 1
Driving to the magnificent Matukituki Valley to meet your helicopter at Cattle Flat, just past the Treble Cone Ski Area. Your backpacks are light because sleeping bags, cooking gear and other necessities will already be in the hut. There is a wide range of runs available, from the moderate angle of the South Face of Black Peak to the Escapade Chutes – there are slopes for everyone. If people are keen there are evening talks on avalanche rescue, terrain analysis or mountain weather. Snow cave building is popular and if you like you can sleep like an Eskimo!

Day 2
Subject to the weather, you may tour west to the Greenstone Trails or Rollercoaster which have the perfect aspect for cold dry snow. Other times you  get no further than the slopes above the hut in search for the deep stuff.

Day 3
Black Peak Hut is located about 7 km from the summit of Treble Cone Ski Area and it is an awesome ski tour. All you need to carry is a light daypack but with over 600m descent and 850m ascent it is a big day to ski tour back to the carpark where our vehicle will be waiting with a cold beverage!
