As the Aotearoa/New Zealand Winter of 2021 comes to a close, I am ready to publish a new website with options for the winter of 2022. It has taken quite a bit of work and I want to thank Jessica for her efforts in putting together the artwork…

45 South Ski Guiding will be providing ski touring and recreational avalanche courses next winter based out of Wanaka. Working under Peak Experience, the programme will include local courses in ski touring and avalanche awareness as well as overnight/multi day ski tours in Tai Poutini/Westland and Aoraki/Mt. Cook National Parks. I can also take you to Tititea/Aspiring National Park, into the Kaikopere/Arrowsmiths and many other great locations on the South Island (Te Waipounamu).

The New Zealand season runs from mid June to mid October. (In summer I work for the Aspen Skiing Company in Colorado, USA).

For more info about a variety of options and to start planning for 2022, please email me at
