A quintessentially New Zealand alpine experience - Soho Basin.
The most breathtaking privately owned ski area in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Soho Basin delivers an exhilarating experience unlike any other. Enjoy the excitement of the ultimate alpine destination in an intimate environment that combines luxury and adventure in equal measure. Nestled in the magical Cardrona Valley, Soho's pristine, untouched natural landscape is a 60 minute drive from Queenstown, 40 minutes from Wanaka or a 10 minute flight via helicopter.
The Soho Experience - New Zealand's best kept secret is an unspoiled playground where you can indulge in a unique back country experience much like heli-skiing yet more relaxed and social. Enjoy free rein of 264 hectares and 500+ vertical meters of pristine high country terrain. Skip the chairlift queue and enjoy our state of the art snowcats with specially designed heated passenger cabins. Take in breath taking vistas all the way from Fiordland to the West Coast, Wanaka and Queenstown. It feels like you have the mountain all to yourself. After a morning of exploration a gourmet three course lunch paired with Amisfield wines on the deck of our Alpine Hut will be served. An area where you can relax throughout the day and soak up the blissful mountain surroundings.
How it works - Soho is an awe inspiring personalized day out for low-intermediate to advanced skiers and boarders. Arrive at the base for your induction with the experienced, welcoming local guides then ride a snowcat up to your first gentle run where you can ease into the day. Navigate more leisurely groomed runs, wide open slopes, chutes or rarely explored ungroomed zones, riding with a guide or cutting your own lines. As the day progresses, adventurous skiers can explore more challenging terrain with the team of guides introducing you to the best lines and deepest powder.
