Winter Escapes

The skiing season in New Zealand, a land of unparalleled beauty, runs from June to October. What sets our ski fields apart is their uncrowded nature, offering plenty of wide-open bowls and gentle slopes for first-time skiers. For the more adventurous, there's off-piste skiing and heliskiing. And the best part? Gear is a breeze to hire, making your skiing experience all the more enjoyable. 


Experience the comfort and convenience of New Zealand's ski resorts. With express lifts, modern snow-making facilities, extensive base facilities, accredited childcare centres, and specialised lessons for children, skiing in New Zealand is a stress-free and enjoyable experience that you wouldn't want to miss.

South Island in New Zealand

Experience excitement from your first glimpse of the Southern Alps as your plane flies over the terrain. A right-hand window seat offers the best views of Mt Hutt when flying into Christchurch. At the same time, either side allows spectacular views on direct flights into Queenstown as the approach passes you between the ranges with views of Cardrona, the Remarkables, and Coronet Peak on a clear day. Off the mountain, the ski towns continually expand with vast accommodations, from funky backpacker lodges to 5-star luxury apartments and hotels. As for Apres ski, you will be spoilt for choice with the numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars on hand. Queenstown is the place to be if you are looking for a hub of activity and many exciting options, even on a Monday night. So don't be fooled by WanMethven'sthven's small-town charm and serenity; they both have their share of hotspots and adrenalin-pumping activities. Finally, while snow occasionally falls in the resort towns, New Zealand is not known for its on-snow accommodation.


Queenstown is NZealand' sd's adventure capital and #1 year-round holiday resort destination, and it needs a little introduction. No other ski town in Australasia comes close to offering the range of activities, nightlife, restaurants, and shopping you can enjoy in this bustling lakeside ski town. Best of all, it's only a three-hour 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 a stroll of all of the action, while shuttle bus services (some supplied free by hotels or the inexpensive Shopper Shuttle) connect you to the more outlying accommodation. Many leading activities also include transport. Self-drive or take advantage of the mountain shuttle services to ski at your choice of the nearby mountains, which are a reasonable drive from the city centre: Coronet Peak, 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). Suppose you feel like taking a break from the slopes. In that case, Queenstown offers a virtually unlimited range of other acting opportunities. Our flexible pass options let you choose a selected activity instead of skiing whenever you like.


In many ways, Wanaka is like a boutique version of the better-known Queenstown, 50 50-minute drive to the south. You get a similar (locals reckon better) lakefront position, glorious views, and a much smaller selection of restaurants and cafes, shops and nightspots. Wanaka attracts a mix of upmarket skiers looking for a quieter getaway, family skiers who appreciate the first-rate kids' facilities at the neighbour kids 'escorts, hardcore freestyle skiers and boarders looking for action who enjoy the extensive off-piste and steeps. You can ski or board at Treble Cone or Cardrona from Wanaka, around 40 minutes' drive from town, or visit the Queenstown ski areas, which are 70 – 90 minutes away. For the ultimate experience, Wanaka is the birthplace of heliskiing in New Zealand. The region is also the largest heliskiing area outside North America, making heliskiing a location to experience New Zealand's best skiing and snowboarding. So, whethZealand'sjoy fun family skiing, peaceful cross-country touring, park jibbing, or heliskiing, you'll find it in Wanaka.

Heli-Skiiheliskiing Byou'llg

Wanaka and Queenstown offer a limitless variety of exclusive backcountry terrain, providing a sense of privilege and exclusivity as you escape from the crowds. With world-class guides, mountaintop landings, sweeping views, and hundreds of square kilometres of untamed remote wilderness, heliskiing in New Zealand is a luxury experience that is hard to resist. Private heliski charters are the epitome of exclusivity, with helicopters and guides exclusively for your use—experience thousands of vertical feet of untracked snow in the Southern Alps. Costs are based on group numbers and the helicopter hours flown. Charter groups often ski 10 – 15 runs daily, adding to the sense of adventure and thrill.

Family Ski Holiday

Hit the slopes and enjoy an exclusive Wanaka family ski holiday! Then, take your family's skiing to the next level with guidance from Greg Harrington (ex-US Olympic ski coach). You can explore Wanaka's ski fields with OnePass—Treble Cone, Cardrona, SWanaka's, and Snow Farm. Relax with a pinot noir while your in-house private chef prepares the family meal. Then, take in your spectacular surroundings and enjoy the majestic views as the sun sets over the Southern Alps.
