New Zealand Ski Holidays
New Zealand comes alive in winter with beautiful snow covered mountains, glistening lakes and lush green landscapes. Considered a premier skiing destination, New Zealand has a number of skiable mountains to choose from, each surrounded by fantastic family friendly resorts. After a day on the slopes, parents can enjoy the picturesque setting by relaxing in one of New Zealand’s hot springs. Take the kids on an overseas adventure and enjoy a family skiing holiday in New Zealand.
Queenstown is a popular tourist destination for skiers with three ski fields in close proximity – The Remarkables, Coronet Peak and Cardrona Peak. Each area offers skiing for every level of ability with wide, gentle slopes for beginners and dedicated learning areas. You’ll find most ski fields in New Zealand will provide children’s snow schools and supervised day care for the little ones. The Remarkables is considered one of the best ski fields to learn on and kids will love the Ozone Tubing Park. Closer to Christchurch, Mt Hutt boasts the longest ski season in New Zealand.
Most of New Zealand’s skiing is enjoyed on the South Island, however the country’s only skiable volcano, Mt Ruapahu, is situated in the middle of the North Island. Whakapapa at Mt Ruapahu is perfect for kids with a dedicated beginner’s area called Happy Valley. Keep in mind that New Zealand also has plenty of activities for the adventurous including heli-skiing, white water rafting and jet boating.
