Spring may be on it's way but in the meantime there's plenty of time to hit the ski slopes and partake in nature and the apres ski attractions. Whether you wish to enjoy the international sophistication of Queenstown or the village like atmosphere of Wanaka here's the latest.


SKIING:
The pre-paid Ski Pass is the best way to go and note an example, NZ SuperPass for both Queenstown and Methven.

It covers New Zealand's premier ski areas plus exciting off-mountain attractions in and around these spots. It can also works for Coronet Peak, Mt Hutt and The Remarkables as well as other South Island ski areas. The pass can also be used as credit towards more than 60 off-mountain activities, retail stores, bars and restaurants in Queenstown, Wanaka, Methven and Canterbury.

Cost: 1 Day:Adult NZ$97

If you're keen to ski at night when the fields are beautifully lit then head for Coronet Peak at a cost of NZ$50 per day.
 

CAR:
Once you've reached your destination it's only natural to want to check out the sights further afield. Most of my clients do request a car as this gives them more independence. When booking make sure you ask about ski/snow board racks and snow chains.

Anne's tip
: Many skiers if travelling with a group or family request a 4 x wheel drive. As these are in high demand do book in advance.


ACCOMMODATION:
There's a variety of accommodation on offer to suit your budget. Included are motels, lodges, conventional hotel rooms or those with cooking facilities that cater to families. Another option is the holiday home rental. For example, you may find a holiday home in Wanaka from only NZ$1000.00 per week. This gives you both SPACE and total PRIVACY.

Alternatively, if you prefer the Queenstown area as a base think about the understated luxury of Millbrook Resort - what's better than indulging in a massage at their deluxe Spa after a hard day on the slopes. Plus, you have the option of playing Golf on the days you don't ski.
