Surrounded by stunning mountain scenery and nestled alongside Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown tops the list of New Zealand ski destinations to visit. There are four skiable mountains within an easy 90 minute drive from Queenstown - Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone.
Coronet Peak is loved by locals because of the easily accessible terrain (just a 25 minute drive) and consistent snow conditions throughout the season. Beginner and intermediate areas are positioned away from the main trails making learning stress-free and keeping the steeper runs free for those with a need for speed.
The Remarkables is just that – remarkable! A 35 minute drive from Queenstown, this mountain receives an abundance of natural snow and is a favourite with families – what’s not to love about three sunny, snow-filled bowls and magnificent views?
Off snow Queenstown has plenty of après ski action with restaurants, bars and nightlife. Queenstown is also well known for adventure activities – skydiving, bungy jumping, heli skiing – you name it and Queenstown has it!
