Climbing Guide


Climbing Guides are able to undertake all climbing and mountaineering activities in New Zealand where skiing is not the main objective.

Climbing Guides have the guiding and instructional skills needed to work in alpine rock, snow, and ice terrain, in both summer and winter. They can be seen guiding and providing instruction on the local rock crags, frozen waterfalls and leading expeditions throughout New Zealand's mountains. NZMGA Climbing Guides have gained a reputation as among the best throughout the world's great ranges.

Ski Guide


Ski Guides are able to undertake all skiing (and snow boarding) activities in New Zealand, including ascents of non-technical peaks (no harder than grade 1 Logans) as part of a ski tour.

Ski Guides have the guiding and instructional skills needed to work in the backcountry ski and snowboard environment. This includes but is not limited to heli ski guiding, ski mountaineering and instruction, on glaciated and non glaciated terrain. NZMGA Ski Guides are leaders in the field of avalanche safety and management and in addition to guiding, often work as specialists in avalanche hazard management as both snow safety officers on snow sport areas and/or as avalanche instructors.

Alpine Trekking Guide


Able to lead groups up to and through sub alpine walking terrain (maximum grade 1 Logan) where permanent snow may be encountered and where risk minimisation may require the use of the rope.
Guide in all other non-glaciated terrain where the skills of alpinism are required, but where a rope would not normally expect to be used.

Alpine Trekking Guides may also directly assist Climbing and IFMGA Mountain Guides on névé walks.
