For most, this is a side of the Southern Alps they may never see. High above and hidden by endless mountain ranges, these snow-covered faces and ridgelines are revealed only to those who mountaineer, or in Stephan’s case, fly in by helicopter.

The Southern Alps is the immense mountain range running the length of the South Island, dividing the island into its east and west coasts. The jagged, snow-capped peaks of the Southern Alps are home to around 3,100 glaciers.
The Southern Alps were formed by tectonic plate movement pushing the mighty mountains. Balancing this movement is the work of the glaciers carving and gouging their way through the landscape. There is evidence of glaciers at work throughout this entire region.
