Summer in New Zealand is made up of long beautiful days in the backcountry. But hiking here is different than many other places, and requires a lot more skill, planning and experience than other mountainous destinations. @mountainsafetycouncil is my go to resource for planning my outdoor adventures to make it home safely and to NOT need @landsarnz to come and rescue my ass if I’ve done something dumb. They’ve released a series of super helpful videos on YouTube this summer that detail some of the most popular alpine hikes and how to tackle them safely. If you plan to hike in New Zealand, I urge you to follow @mountainsafetycouncil and subscribe to their YouTube to help you prepare - it’s an epic free resource we’re lucky to have.
