    I have never been to NZ. I am a Nordic skier . My snow shoes sit in the cellar. They seldom see any use. The Bogong High Plains here in VIC., Ozstriya have multi night options , hut to hut for snow shoers in the same way ski touring out there is appealing.

    I believe there is some hut based touring out of Roundhill/Lake Tekapo region. Also the plateau where Snow Farm xc resort is located above Cardrona valley. Tour operators based in Wanaka will have options. Just some suggestions to explore but others (kiwis) will know more.
