Why Ski NZ this Winter?
New Zealand being a short flight from Australia is the perfect destination for an overseas holiday, not too far from home. With breathtaking scenery, a favourable exchange rate, and arguably the longest ski season in Australasia, there is a lot to love about New Zealand for your next ski trip destination.
The highlight to travelling New Zealand is that it is so much more than just a snow holiday – from adrenaline adventure tours, glacier hiking, hot pools and wineries to some of the most stunning scenery in the world – ask your Snowscene consultant about the direct flights to cities on NZ’s South Island including Queenstown, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Being such a diverse country with unique geography it is the perfect destination to fly into one city and drive to another before venturing on to one of the stunning ski towns of Queenstown, Methven or Wanaka just to name a few. You can self-drive at your own pace in a motorhome or be part of a guided tour such as the Ladies Ski Week & Snobus Tours hosted by Snowscene. There are many ways to get around the South Island and the North.
Before we start focusing on the epic ski and snowboard terrain that New Zealand has to offer, we also want to talk about the TranzAlpine train experience across the Southern Alps. Experience a glacier to its fullest with a Heli-hike tour, NZ’s world-famous walking tracks, or cruise the majestic Milford Sound & Doubtful Sound. As you can see a week is needed on either side of your snow holiday to make the most of this amazing country, so close to home.
