Thinking About Hitting The Slopes?
New Zealand is home to a number of world-class ski fields in both the North and the South islands. Although the majority reside in the lower middle of the south island, Kiwi’s on both ends of the nation is only a road trip away from hitting the slopes over Winter.
For the more scenic skier or snowboarder, we thoroughly recommend hitting the slopes of the South Island. As a number of the south island ski fields look out over pristine lakes and townships, you get the full experience of the mountains!
