Glacier Snout

During the ice ages huge glaciers filled the hollows of today's lakes and valleys. These breathtaking monsters sculptured the land moving billions of tonnes of material. 

We learn to understand how glaciers are formed and carve the deep and awesome valleys we enjoy today. New Zealand has over 3,000 glaciers. 

Audio visuals, information centres, helicopter flights, commentaries, written notes and work sheets all to help interested groups understand the processes involved with:-
●  Formation
●  Flow
●  Size proportions
●  "Rapids"
●  Ice falls
Remnant valleys
Icebergs - their creation and demise
Lakes & kettles - made by glaciers
