He wants to surf, you want to ski. But you can’t do both, can you? Wrong. Queenstown luxury private guiding company Alpine Adventures has launched a range of private snow tours including a ‘heli ski and surf tour’ where you can watch a wave and hit the slopes all in the same day. The tours, from June to October, are conducted by Alpine’s owner, Mark Dewsbery, who says, “Fiordland is one of the best places in the world where you can surf a fantastic and remote wave in the morning with a local expert, then ski the afternoon away on the mountains – a legendary adventures.”
