Craigieburn Valley Ski Area is a ski field located in the heart of the Southern Alps on New Zealand’s South Island. About 90 minutes from Christchurch (110km), Craigieburn is known for its wide open powder bowls, steep narrow chutes, and infamous 600 meter vertical drop in the Middle Basin. Craigieburn is not for the faint of heart, the ski area is completely off-piste terrain with no grooming. There is no terrain for beginner skiers and no ski rental facilities on the mountain. Some compare skiing at Craigieburn to heli-skiing due to its backcountry feel, un-touched powder, and long runs. Craigieburn is also a great access point for backcountry skiers and ski touring enthusiasts. Be sure to bring your avalanche gear because the terrain outside the resort is un-patrolled. Craigieburn and Broken River are close neighbors and are connected via a 15 minute hike.
