Ski like a local and enjoy the stunning snow-capped mountains of the Southern Alps.

With one of the longest ski seasons from June to October, Queenstown and Wanaka are a haven for snow lovers. Choose from five commercial ski resorts which are some of the best places to ski in New Zealand - The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, CardronaTreble Cone and Snow Farm(opens in new window) has something for everyone including Olympic-sized super pipes, state of the art chairlifts, cruising groomed runs, big mountain style and spectacular views.

To experience fresh, untouched powder, head to Soho Basin(opens in new window), a private ski area with snowcats instead of chairlifts, or embark on a heliskiing adventure.

With world-class ski resorts added with plenty of après-ski and downtime options in the bustling Queenstown and laid back Wanaka resort towns, you'll be sure to have a fabulous snow holiday.
