So you say you want to ski New Zealand this winter? Well, we here at Mons have our favourites and in order to help you make the most of your days on snow, we’ve asked for the help of our local ambassadors to give you the best tips, tricks and secrets of four legendary mountains. Get ready to ski New Zealand.
Like a good riding buddy, Mons Royale has your back this winter. From providing your merino mountain essentials to knowing where the best snow stash is. Or even grabbing the first round at apres... okay maybe we'll let you get that.
Let’s start at the top, or rather, the base.
The largest ski area in New Zealand’s South Island, Treble Cone is one that every rider puts on their season bucket list. Uncrowded groomed runs, epic off-piste skiing and incredible views make this mountain legendary. For the Mons crew, Treble Cone is our local mountain, so we’ll let a few secrets loose.
The beauty of Ohau is that it feels like club field in that you escape the crowds that you’ll find at mountains further south. In-bounds caters to all abilities, but if you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, there’s some incredible hiking off the tops, lending access to the best powder and views. Mons ambassador Mike Handford can let you in on some tricks of the trade.
Follow our social channels for the next four weeks because we’re on a mission to ski New Zealand and learn more tricks and tips from our local Mons ambassadors. Then, we’ll share it all with you.
One last tip before you start packing. You never know what the mountains are going to throw at you, so make sure you have gear that keeps up. We’re talking merino accessories, performance socks and of course, the most epic baselayers. Lightweight, but warm. Performance with edge. Pack less, do more on all your mountain missions.
So grab your essentials, start the car and get to the mountains. We’ve got your merino, we’ve got your local knowledge, all you need to bring along is the chilly bin full of beers. See you out there.
