Favourite Ski Resort / Ski Town
My favourite ski resort would be Aspen, Colorado. So much on offer for everyone. Its great to have all 4 mountains to explore so close to each other.

Snow Holiday Bucket List
I would love to take the family to experience a Hokkaido ski holiday in northern Japan. The fabulous winter cuisine, the quality of powder snow, the amazing hospitality of the Japanese people, along with so many mountains to explore.  All the makings of the ideal family holiday and all so accessible from Australia.

Favourite Après Ski Scene 
After a fun day exploring Aspen Mountain, I enjoy sitting back at the Ajax Tavern with friends enjoying an amazing cocktail and some of their famous truffle fries.

Recommended Experience 
If you decide to take a day off skiing whilst in Queenstown, I recommend a Gondola ride up to the Skyline. The luge ride is a lot of fun, its best to book ahead for the buffet restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner each day with spectacular views over Queenstown. Gold panning in Arrowtown is also a lot of fun with the kids.
