We are a team offering the best glacier experiences in the world


Want to join the team?

Add on a glacier landing or scenic flight after your adventure with us with Mount Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters!


Unfortunately at the moment we don’t have any positions available- but keep checking back as we head towards summer we will be looking for new crew members.

Mt Cook Glacier Guiding (and its sister company Fox Glacier Guiding) are currently looking for Trainee Glacier Guides to join our team in June and August 2024  

This is an opportunity to live in a unique environment where glaciers, rainforest and the ocean meet, at the foot of New Zealand’s highest mountains.  South Westland provides plentiful opportunities for climbing, tramping, hunting, fishing, and kayaking.

If you love being outdoors, you are physically fit, you connect with people, and you can tell a good story, we would like to hear from you.

Working on the Tasman Glacier or Fox Glacier will give you an opportunity to learn and develop guiding skills in a dynamic alpine environment accessed by helicopters. We provide professional training within the framework of the New Zealand Mountain Guides’ Association.


  • Great customer service skills
  • Current first aid qualification (Preferably PHEC or Advanced Outdoor First Aid)
  • Eligibility to work in New Zealand
  • A full drivers license
  • Pre- employment drug and alcohol screening
  • Previous guiding experience would be an advantage
  • Mandarin language skills are advantageous


Contact Jenna Pitcon by email for more information at and indicate if you are interested in Fox Glacier, Mt Cook or both

Applications close May 3rd 2024
