A New Zealand skiing holiday gives you more magic in every day! New Zealand has developed a deserved reputation as an international skiing destination.
The skiing season runs from June to October, the landscape and scenery are out of this world, and gear is easy to hire. New Zealand ski fields are uncrowded with plenty of wide-open bowls and gentle slopes for first-time skiers as well as off-piste skiing and heli-skiing for the more adventurous.
Experience stunning mountains, incredible scenery, lively ski towns, and friendly locals! Express lifts, modern snow-making facilities, extensive base facilities, accredited childcare centres, and specialised lessons for children all make skiing in New Zealand an experience not to be missed.
South Island in New Zealand
Experience excitement from your very first glimpse of the Southern Alps as your plane flies over the terrain. Mt Hutt, Cardrona, The Remarkables, Coronet Peak and Treble Cone are the top ski resorts on the South Island. Off mountain luxury accommodation awaits. As for apres ski, you will be spoilt for choice with the numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars on hand. Note that while snow does fall in the resort towns on occasion, New Zealand is not known for its on-snow accommodation.
Queenstown is New Zealand’s adventure capital and #1 year-round holiday resort destination and needs little introduction. No other ski town in Australasia comes close to offering the range of activities, night-life, restaurants, and shopping you can enjoy in this bustling lakeside ski town. Best of all, it’s only just over three hours direct flight from Sydney, Brisbane, or Melbourne (but be quick for these flights sell out fast). Much of the accommodation in Queenstown is close to the city centre, so you are within an easy stroll of all of the action. Coronet Peak is under 30 minutes away, The Remarkables 45 minutes away, and Treble Cone or Cardrona around 90 minutes away (estimates subject to road, weather, and traffic conditions). If you feel like taking a break from the slopes, Queenstown offers a virtually unlimited range of other activity opportunities and our flexible pass options let you opt for a selected activity instead of skiing whenever you feel like it.
In many ways Wanaka is like a boutique version of the better known Queenstown, 50 minutes drive to the south. Wanaka attracts a mix of upmarket skiers who are looking for a quieter getaway, as well as family skiers who appreciate the first-rate kids’ facilities at the neighbouring resorts, and hardcore freestyle skiers and boarders looking for action who appreciate the extensive off-piste and steeps. You can ski or board at either Treble Cone or Cardrona from Wanaka which are both around 40 minutes drive from town. Or for the ultimate experience, Wanaka is the birthplace of heliskiing in New Zealand. The region is also home to the largest heli-skiing area outside North America, making it the ultimate location to experience New Zealand’s best skiing and snowboarding.
Heli-Skiing and Heli Boarding
Private heli-ski charters are the ultimate experience, providing a helicopter and guide exclusively for your use. Experience thousands of vertical feet of untracked snow in the Southern Alps.
