Aro-Ha Wellness Retreat offers two Heli Ski Weeks this New Zealand Winter

April 30, 2014 Ski No Comments Email Email

Skiers and boarders looking for a truly unique alpine adventure this winter can choose from two Alpine Adventure retreats at New Zealand’s leading luxe wellness retreat, Aro-Ha.

Heli skiers and boarders will  not only ski virgin untracked powder in some of the finest Southern Alps terrain but will also benefit from the Aro-Ha wellness program including daily yoga, massage and a nutrient dense organic cleansing cuisine menu.    The first of it’s kind Alpine Adventure Retreat will be limited to ten guests at a time ensuring two small heli ski groups for more time on the snow and more vertical metres to boast about.

Like minded alpine enthusiasts will stay in Zen inspired luxury at Aro-Ha on the shores of Lake Wakatipu near Glenorchy and surrounded by majestic peaks laden with snow.   All heli ski guides are UIAGM and NZMGA certified and guests  will be provided with transceivers and safety equipment and fully briefed on their use.

High end demo snowboards and skis can also be provided. Groups will be divided into intermediate and advanced/expert and a typical heli ski wellness day will start with sunrise yoga followed by a paleo fuelled breakfast followed by four to seven heli ski runs before a pristine lunch served in the mountain wilderness. Upon return to Aro-Ha, guests will experience a therapeutic massage, a stretch and strength class, nutrition demo and restorative yoga and dinner.    Nights are spent in the hot tub and sauna or by the fire sharing ski stories before an early rest for an early rise to do it all over again.

The heli ski Alpine Adventure weeks are alcohol free with a focus on food for fuel and fitness.  Guests can expect to feel leaner, stronger and more flexible with an improved state of mood and mind.   7 day heliski retreat: 8 – 14 August 2014 from NZ$9975 per person all inclusive including four heli ski days with four runs per day and a seven run upgrade option  5 day heliski retreat: 6 -10 September 2014 from NZ$5725 per person all inclusive including two heli ski days with four runs per day and a seven run upgrade option   Six heli skiing and Aro-Ha images attached in medium res.
