Well I am an awesome snowboarder! Not that I fly off cliffs or anything which is good because I need to come to work to arrange all those wonderful ski and winter holidays for you guys! I love everything about the snow, snowboarding and the beautiful New Zealand mountains. My top ski tip is 'don't take a skateboard on a ski slope'.

I love the snow and you will find me snowboarding most of the winter. I love planning ski and winter holidays as this is something I am very passionate about. Holiday being the key word – in Queenstown and Wanaka there is so much to do even in winter so using my knowledge to make sure you have a great time is what I do best. My top ski tip – save money on a gym membership – just run down the magic carpet!

I am almost a professional snowboarder…. No it is not one of those new hover boards it is a snow board. I am originally from Germany, but have lived in Wanaka for many years. It’s the combination of great skiing, NZ's alpine playground and of course my wonderful boss that makes this the place for me. My top ski tip is - 'you go much faster when your board doesn't touch the snow'.

I have been skiing since I could walk. I love speed so when it comes to the slopes I prefer to race down the hill rather than busting out tricks in the park. I have attempted Snowboarding, but after several bumps and bruises, I decided to stick to the Skis. I have also spent time volunteering with Adaptive Snow Sports, helping people with disabilities experience the freedom of snow sports. My top ski tip - If you ain't fallin', you ain't haulin!'

I learnt to ski at the age of 3 in France, and skied in various spots in Europe while growing up (did manage to get on the black runs and a half pipe at some points)  I also like to get involved in the Apres Ski....Queenstown is a great place for this to enjoy the hot chocolate, mulled wine and the stunning views. Give me a call today to discuss your NZ Ski holiday!

I am originally from Australia and when I first hit the slopes of New Zealand I was forced into a hideous pair of pink ski overalls, bright enough to warn others of my impending high speed uncontrolled arrival...however, I quickly became a pretty good snowboarder and have since mastered the local fields! I can help you plan a great ski trip, I know the ins and outs of the ski fields - just don't get any ski fashion advice from me!

Backcountry snowboarding is my biggest love and after 5 winters in Japan chasing powder and 2 working for ski resorts here in New Zealand (plus countless snow holidays) I know the ins and outs of what makes an incredible ski holiday for anyone from aprés skiers, to beginners, to snow addicts like me. I’m lucky enough to call Wanaka my home, with world-class ski resorts and untouched mountain terrain at my doorstep. My top skiing & boarding tip - you don’t have to be good at it to have fun!

Originally from the Bay of Islands, I had itchy feet to explore the rest of the world. After years of living in the UK and Australia, I am excited to be back in my home country and Wanaka has made this easy. It's amazing to be back i this beautiful part of the world and I can't wait to help people discover their own New Zealand.

Growing up in the UK, I spent most of my holidays at the beach, so my first taste of winter was last year when I settle in Wanaka and got to experience Treble Cone and Cardorna for the first time. I Can’t believe what I have been missing out on I absolutely loved my first ski season and can’t wait for many more.  It is exciting that I now live in a place where skiing is possible in the winter.

I took off overseas as soon as I finished university and explored the world for a few years, returning to New Zealand with a new appreciation of the country. With my extensive knowledge of New Zealand and all it has to offer I look forward to making all your New Zealand holiday dreams come true.

I am a snowboarder, I don’t feel I would be co-ordinated enough to manage skis! I live in Wanaka and enjoy the exploring the surrounding ski fields! If I’m not up the mountain you will find me cuddled up with a hot chocolate and blanket by the fire. My hot tip is always wear wrist guards! Even if you think you’re a pro!

I love the mountains, mainly for skiing and snowboarding but I spend a fair amount of my time outside hiking and exploring all this beautiful country has to offer too. When I’m not up the mountains I love a visit to a good winery! It's quite hard to find of photo of me without ski gear, a hat or sunnies on! Talk to me about your ski holiday today.

I was born in Cape Town and moved to the hustle and bustle of London when I was 10 years old. I craved fresh air, mountain, snow and an outdoors lifestyle so made the move to Wanaka and am loving every minute!! My weekends consist of trying to cram in as much hiking, skiing, and kayaking as possible. I have the best job.. sharing these hidden gems with you!

Born and raised in Wellington I came to spend a summer holiday in Wanaka a few years ago and instantly fell in love. I decided to leave the city life and make my way to the beautiful lakes and mountains. I love to be outdoors exploring and hiking. I am incredibly lucky to live here in this awesome part of the world, let me show you why!
