From Arthur's Pass village, Avalanche Peak can be reached from two directions, either by the Avalanche Peak Track (begins opposite the Public Shelter), or Scotts Track (begins opposite Devils Punchbowl Creek). Both are easy ascents. WARNING: Do not attempt to cross the basins above Avalanche Creek or Rough Creek if there is deep snow. The avalanche danger in both these basins is extreme.
