New Zealand Ski Tours

There are few tourism destinations in New Zealand that can boast the reputation that Queenstown has built for itself. People both in NZ and around the globe know of the town and its many exciting adventure activities.

One of the most exciting parts of Queenstown is its location, as it’s nestled right among the spectacular Southern Alps. With such easy access to the snowy peaks, skiing and snowboarding is huge down here, with numerous resorts and tracks a short drive away. Two of the most popular are less than an hour away: The Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

The Remarkables

One word sums up this mountainscape above all others (even if it’s a little obvious) – remarkable. Like something straight out of Lord Of The Rings, this range stands proudly above the international airport, with jagged peaks that look as sharp as a knife. However, the mountainside that faces away from the town is far gentler, with a six-person chairlift and three quads.

The Remarkables’ slopes are 30 per cent beginner, 40 per cent intermediate and 30 per cent expert, with its longest run spanning 1.5 kilometres, according to NZSki. There are also three terrain parks if you feel like busting out your best moves, as well as three restaurants/cafes to boost your energy levels back up!
-Distance from Queenstown: 35 minutes.

Coronet Peak

For something a little closer, choose Coronet Peak. This mountain is a little gentler than its neighbour, with far more intermediate (blue square) slopes – ideal for anyone looking to up their skills without stressing out too much.

One of the major drawcards of Coronet Peak is its night skiing. Every Friday and Saturday you can enjoy the park evening in the dark, as hundreds of lights keep things sparkling from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
-Distance from Queenstown: 20 minutes.
