Special Packages.

We take pride in offering our guests the ideal ski trip for their aspirations and budget. The below packages represent the ultimate in flexibility and customisation.

Custom Trips We can design a custom trip for your group with any combination of heliski, club field and non-skiing days ​that you require.

Private Charter We specialise in Private Charter Heliskiing. This means you can have exclusive use of an aircraft, pilot and guides for your group alone.

Heli Transfers For the ultimate in ease and luxury, we can base the helicopter from the lodge and fly from the front door direct to the snow each day.

Group Rates For the best experience possible we encourage you to gather a group of four or more and book out the lodge privately. Please ask about our special group booking rates.

Booking Details:

Chalet can be booked by the room, by the half chalet (2 double bedrooms on your own floor) or by the full chalet on an exclusive basis (4 double bedrooms).

If the half chalet or by the room options are chosen, we reserve the right to book the other bedrooms with other skiers. If this happens, we will only book like-minded groups together so everyone is assured of a great time.

Kids too young to ski are most welcome – we can arrange a babysitting / day-care service while Mum and Dad are making fresh tracks.


To make a reservation at The Neon PomPom, we have a four-step process:

Step 1: We invite you to tell us a bit about you via our enquiry form. Make sure you tell us a bit about you, any individuals in your group, how many of you and what you want to get out of your NZ ski adventure.

Step 2: We confirm availability and ask for a 50% deposit* to secure your dates.  The balance of your trip, plus any extras or less any deductions, is payable upon departure from the chalet.

Step 3: You confirm that you’re in, and arrange payment of the 50%  deposit.

Step 4: You arrive in New Zealand and the fun begins…

*If for whatever reason you or any members of the group cannot make it, we will refund 100% of the trip cost if you let us know up to 1 month before the start of the holiday. If you have to cancel inside 1 month before the start of the holiday, we cannot offer a refund but can transfer you to another available date that season.
