Snowshoeing Snow Play

Guided Snowshoe Walk

NTT SnowShoe Hero KS 1202 RGBAn easy Snowshoe trip into a snowy gully where we enjoy million dollar views and get involved in the fun business of enjoying the snow.

Snowshoes allow you to walk across unbroken snow without sinking up to your waist. Its fun and easy.

An easy family experience with a short walk into a snowy gully on your Snowshoes.  Once there we have a range of fun activities based around play, shaping and using snow in all its forms.  This requires a low level of fitness and is a shorter 4 hour return trip to Queenstown with your choice of morning or afternoon departures.  The minimum Child age is 3 years.

This makes it perfect for families and customers keen for the snow but uninterested in going for a long walk. We build several fun snow features which you can take a turn at enlarging and maintaining. Snow caves, igloo, carved tables and animals all turn up through the season.
