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 - Cardrona, Treble Cone, and the two closest Coronets Peak (25 mins drive from town) and The Remarkables (30 mins drive from town).
Coronet Peak is New Zealand’s original home of skiing with stunning views and roller coaster terrain. Start at 8am with First Tracks and continue well after dark with night skiing until 9pm to experience the South Island’s longest day on the slopes.
The Big Mountain experience waits for you at The Remarkables. The Remarkables is a family favourite where kids five and under ski for free. And for the pros, get that feeling of pure freedom as you drop into sun-soaked bowls and world-renowned chutes or take it to the next level at any of the five terrain parks including The Burton Stash - one of only six in the world!
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, riding the famous luge – you name it and Queenstown has it!
There is a huge variety of accommodation options in Queenstown. Whether you’d like to be right in the heart of the vibrant town or closer to the slopes, luxury 5 star or budget friendly 3 star, self-catered apartments or don’t-lift-a-finger hotel, there’s an option for everyone!
