8D7N New Zealand Experience

The Perfect Trip For Snow & Adventure

Designed for skiers & snowboarders of all riding levels

Queenstown is the adventure hub of New Zealand and surrounded by 3 of NZ’s best ski resorts: Coronet Peak, The Remarkables & Cardrona. Each with its own unique characteristics, these resorts will offer you a week of fun-filled adventure. 

We’ve designed the NZ experience to cater to all riding levels – beginner, intermediate & advanced. With some of the best beginner learning areas, varied on-piste terrain options, lift-accessed off-piste ranges and world class snow parks, you’re in for a treat no matter what level of skiing and snowboard you are at.

To fully enjoy our guiding sessions throughout the trip, we recommend that you are able to navigate your way and make turns down green slopes comfortably.

If it’s your first time on snow or looking to learn and improve your riding, we highly recommend that you opt for lessons during your first few days. 

Whether travelling solo or with a group of friends, you will come as strangers and leave as friends bound together by a shared love for adventure, skiing & snowboarding.
