    Hi,
    you've got this question in a few locations, but I'll just pick here. Skitouring.co.nz & its facebook group (& also the ski mountaineering mt cook facebook group) linked by Simon & Craig are a good start. You could look at my trip reports for pictures of a lot of the classic terrain. The short answer is I have a lot of information about skiing and climbing in Aoraki Mt Cook & Westland NPs (I started guiding in 2000), but that post could get terrifyingly long, so if you wanted to make your questions a bit more specific here or contact me, then I'll help you out with some (possibly far too many) details. I'll be guiding some skiing in the park in September as well, so I might see you there.

    A little clip of terrain & the view - the top of the Boys Glacier on the way out from Plateau Hut to the village. No useful help, but encouragement to go ahead with your trip...
