Sample Itinerary

Day  1
Your backpacks are light because sleeping bags, cooking gear and other necessities will already be in the hut. After dropping your gear at Robrosa Hut you will get straight into the local runs. Some people are more comfortable with the long easy ridges while others prefer the steep chutes that blanket the area.

Day 2 
Whether you stay local or explore the numerous bowls on the Lowburn Face just depends on how hard you want to hit it. You will be blown away at the wide variety of ski runs available.

Day 3
The ski tour out from Robrosa Hut to the Snow Farm Nordic Area is about 12km with 500m gain and 750m descent. Skiing out via the Princeburn Valley offers over 6km continuous downhill and with only a light pack to carry it is a ski tour to savor. There is ample opportunity to stop and enjoy some of the steeper cliff runs along the way. We usually arrive back at the vehicle at 4pm followed by a 5pm thirst quenching debrief at Aspiring Guides Wanaka office.
