BackCountry Report

Access to the back country is made through gates at the top of Curvey Basin, Shadow Basin and Sugar Bowl chair lifts. Please respect any closures and always make a point of checking in with our Patrol staff who are only too keen to know your intentions and offer advice on the snow pack in bounds.


If you decide to go skiing or snowboarding in the back country, you need to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanches happen for a reason, so it’s important to choose your terrain wisely. It is good practice to alert our Ski Patrol with details of your anticipated back country trip. You can pop into our Ski Patrol office at any time. Please be aware that our Ski Patrol do not patrol these areas and only venture here in the case of a known emergency. Please visit the Mountain Safety website for details on requirements to ensure a safe backcountry adventure.

For up to date avalanche information please refer to the NZ Avalanche Centre's latest update.



Alta Turquoise to Alta Lake is the designated safe ski touring route and is the only permitted ski touring route while ski patrol is conducting avalanche control work. Ski touring within the ski area boundary is dangerous and can result in serious injury so please respect ALL SIGNAGE AND CLOSURES.

Please check out our SKI TOURING SAFETY info.
