New Zealand is a great destination when it comes to winter and snow activities. From June to October, snow transforms New Zealand’s alpine landscapes into winter wonderlands. With amazing activities for the whole family, New Zealand has amazing scenery and adrenaline pumping activities that you’ll cherish your entire lifetime.
The southern Alps of New Zealand provide some fine skiing with five hundred kilometers of mountain ranges splitting the South Island from the North like a spine.
New Zealand is the place to be if you are into snowboarding. Ohau-a ski area between Christchurch and Queenstown has a great choice of steeps and excellent riding for all levels.
New Zealand Heliskiing offers a great selection of adventure and activities with levels to suit everyone. It is the ultimate snow experience. Queenstown is a perfect location as the weather is more stable compared to further North in Mt cook and Methven.
Snowshoe is simply walking on the snow and it is a great way to enjoy the snow, the mountains, the peace and serenity of the country, away from the busy slopes.
This is a fun family activity. Mt Harper, Lake Taupo, and Manorburn Dam in Otago are few places that skaters gather to practice their skills. Some of New Zealand’s ice rinks focus on public themed evenings, figure skating and ice hockey.
