One of two great local peaks that have easy access and only take between 50-90 mins to summit from the top of the Skyline gondola at Bobs peak.  Bowen Peak offers fantastic views out towards the Southern Alps and some decent routes down into Arthurs Point.

The take off is tussock and often the wind is coming lightly over the back.  However the committed launch and flight down the face and onto the Shotover River beaches is well worth it.  A relatively simple mission that is great after work during the summer and can be fitted into a busy weekend!
