Snow sloths, snow bunnies & snow men: Fancy a trip to NZ for the season?
I tried skiing once. My skis fell off on a downhill run, I went snowblind and all the skin peeled off my face.
To snow, I say no (unless I am watching it from the safety of an armchair) but if you enjoy freezing your ass off in the name of recreation, I say go!
Mojosnow, a NZ-based tour operator, run snow tours for first-timers right through to Olympic Gold Medallists in groups of up to 24 people.
The 3-day Holy Grail tour starts from $475 per person, departs Auckland every Saturday and includes two nights dorm share accommodation in Raglan and a National Park.
The 6-day Snow Roadie tour starts from $729 per person, departs Christchurch every Saturday and includes six nights dorm share accommodation in Mt Cook Village, a country lodge, Wanaka and Queenstown.
For those who don’t want to ski/snowboard all day, you can buy a Mojosnow Multi Pass that provides access to some of the best deals on ski lift passes, caving, surfing, bungee jumping, winery tours and skydiving. You can also trade in credits for a bar tab (come to mama!).
As the kiwis would say, ‘Thus us charp as chups!’ (translation: This is a cheap way to find out if you like snow activities). For further information, please visit www.mojosnow.com
