Skiers and boarders looking for a unique alpine adventure this winter will be tickled for choice between two Alpine Adventure Retreats at New Zealand’s leading luxe wellness destination, Aro Ha. This winter, guests will have the exciting opportunity to go heli skiing and boarding on untracked powder in some of the finest Southern Alps terrain, with the added benefits from the Aro-Ha wellness programme. The retreat’s joys include daily yoga, massage and a menu of nutrient-dense organic cleansing cuisine. This one-of-a-kind Alpine Adventure Retreat is available as a seven-day experience from 8 to 14 August 2014, with prices starting at NZ$9975 per person all inclusive. This includes four heli ski days with four runs per day and potential to upgrade to a seven-run option.
After the Alpine Adventure Retreat guests are expected to feel leaner, stronger and more flexible with an improved state of mood and mind.
Groups will be divided into intermediate and advanced/expert and a typical heli ski wellness day will start with sunrise yoga and 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.
All heli ski guides are UIAGM and NZMGA certified and guests will be provided with transceivers, safety equipment and fully briefed on how to use them. High-end demo snowboards and skis will also be provided. www.aro-ha.com
