Mount Cook Heli, as Good as it Gets!
In this episode we venture to the heart of the Southern Alps, Mount Cook National Park. Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain peak. Cascading out of the valley floor above Lake Pukaki – this is one of the more scenically epic locations in the world and we got to snowboard here – and it was incredible!
With the use of a helicopter, the crew are scooped up to a field of insane New Zealand terrain that is covered in ‘marshmallow-like’ knee deep powder snow. Nick Brown, Stef Zeestraten and Nick Hyne waste no time in finding every last nook and cranny on the mountain to jump off and hack to pieces.
