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 season runs from June to October, the landscapes 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 and off-piste skiing and heli-skiing for the more adventurous.

And if you need a day off from skiing, there are loads of other activities in the area. Enjoy wineries and hot springs, check out the local wildlife, or get into some adventure sports!
