Ski Weeks.

13 July 2016

Throughout the winter season most ski areas will host a themed ski week, where you can live on the mountain for a week, enjoying ski in ski out accommodation, catered food, and great company.

Broken River

BR offers a few more unique ski weeks than the other fields, hosting the crew from Ski and Fly as well as putting on a Telemark week. Both are rising in popularity with skiers in the community looking for the next challenge, or surge of adrenalin.

The Telemark week consists of three lessons with certified skiing and telemarking instructors, 6 nights’ accommodation, and the opportunity to spend a week with other people passionate about this sport. Find out all the details and book here

For a week in August speedriders take over for the annual Ski and Fly camp. This camp caters to beginner and intermediate flyers, and has been running at Broken River for five years now. The course covers launching, gaining control while flying, and keeping in control while flying. For intermediates, the course covers gaining confidence in the sport. Find out all the details and book here.

Temple Basin

Temple Basin plays host to a range of ski weeks, some of them put on by the Temple Basin Ski Club, others by the Canterbury University Snowsports Club. The thing they have in common is the amount of stoked people coming in off the snow after a hard day of hiking, skiing, and snowboarding.

During the school holidays Temple Basin hosts a number of Supervised Junior Weeks and Family Weeks, all with the aim of getting the next generation of skiers and riders into skiing. You can book a ski week by getting in touch with the club at info@templebasin.co.nz

CUSSC has a big ski week at the end of August, and it’s always guaranteed to be a party. This week is topped off by the Whitedot Enduro Race, and has a few smaller events in the middle of it. This week is a good way for students to reset before the last term of semester kicks in. This one is for the students, so check out www.facebook.com/snowsportsclubuc for details on all their events.

Mt Olympus

With a themed ski week for every week of the season, Mt Olympus has plenty on offer for people visiting the field. For those wanting to escape work for a few days, the Midwinter Break is on in July, for the recently (or not) retired, Dogtuckers runs in August, and those who feel a good day (or week) of skiing is better than class, the School Bunkers Week runs in August as well.

All of these ski weeks include accommodation, meals, and lift tickets. To make a booking get in touch on bookings@mtolympus.co.nz
