New Zealand

New Zealand is fast becoming the ski destination for the adventurous. With world-class powder in multiple locations (including on the side of an active volcano in Mt Ruapehu), you can spend some days cruising down sunny mountains and others indulging in all the adrenaline-fuelled pursuits that are turning this small country into the extreme capital of the world.

Our favourite Ski Resorts in New Zealand are detailed below.

Wanaka

Located in the stunning alps of the South Island in New Zealand, visitors from around the world are drawn to the Wanaka region by its outstanding natural beauty. Wanaka’s lakes and mountains and proximity to Cardrona and Treble Cone, make it the ultimate base for your ski adventure. After a day on the slopes, stroll the streets and be inspired by galleries, stylish shops and be spoilt for choice with a great selection of cool cafes and restaurants.

Queenstown

Nestled alongside the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by majestic, snowcapped mountains, Queenstown is the perfect winter holiday destination. Whether you have an appetite for adventure, mountains and fresh air or are more at home enjoying a delicious meal and fine wine next to a roaring fire, get away from the everyday and escape to Queenstown.

The cosmopolitan town has a welcoming, vibrant energy that resonates across the resort to make Queenstown a unique holiday destination—and at no time is this more obvious than in winter, when skiers and boarders, or those just curious about snow, gather here to lap up the fun.  The Remarkables and Coronet Peak offer all levels of skiiers a playground amongst a stunning backdrop to enjoy.

Mt Hutt

Mt Hutt has wide open and uncrowded beginner trails, and steep descents and open powder runs for the more advanced skier. It’s perfect for every age and ability and fantastic for families. A network of progressive terrain parks and dedicated learning facilities.

Mt Hutt is easily accessible, only a 90 minute drive from Christchurch.
