Tour Leaders; Mike and Vicki Wiggins : Skiing is their passion and Life

Mike and Vicki have been involved in the skiing business for over 40 years and will lead this tour, as they have done to many places in previous years. Mike is a life member of the NZ Ski Instructors Alliance and can offer ski tips while showing you around the slopes.

They have both been involved with ski tours to most NZ ski resorts as well as Canada and the USA. They have toured many USA and Canadian ski-fields by campervan, so they are familiar with all the ins and outs of many of the areas. Ben has also spent time skiing in the USA and Canada as well as the deep powder of Japan and can give you 1st hand information on Japan’s ski fields.  Along with their son Ben, they own the hugely successful TCB Ski, Board and Bike in Ohakune, Mt Ruapehu and Ben and the Team are some of the best boot-fitters and ski-tuners in the country and can offer equipment assistance, professional ski tuning or advice before you head off.

Call into their shop in Ohakune and talk to Mike, Ben or the team about the fantastic skiing available in Japan, Canada or the USA. You can be assured of a great trip with the best advice, great accommodation and skiing.
