ITINERARY FOR THE WEEK

TRIP ITINERARY

Click on each day to see what we have in store for you in Queenstown, New Zealand

Check In: 3PM onwards

Arrive at Queenstown International Airport (ZQN), gather at the designated meeting point in the airport & our hosts will pick you up to get to the apartments. Check-in, meet the crew for the week and get cosy. For those who require rentals, today’s the day to get fitted before the Welcome Dinner.

We will be briefing the group on NZ’s ski areas and attractions over a Welcome Dinner in the apartments.

Today will be all about warming your legs up and getting your snow legs back! At the start of the morning, our team will split the group up according your skill levels before taking you around the trails of Coronet Peak that will be most suitable for your enjoyment. From gentle beginner runs to long cruisy blues and challenging varied terrain, Coronet has it all – you can expect to be fully entertained on day one with the crew!

Dinner is free & easy in town, or join the group for a dinner reservation!

Day 3 is when we take it up a notch and venture deeper into our secret spots. Again, splitting the group by skill level and how adventurous you’d like to get, our team of hosts willl guide you through the less explored (and less crowded).

From Green Gate’s cruisy pow lines to the steeps of Coronet’s backbowls, you’re in for a treat with some of the most epic runs with breathtaking views to match!

Dinner is free & easy in town, or join the group for a dinner reservation!

On Day 4, we welcome you to The Remarkables. A resort spoken highly of by many and distinguised by its 3 main areas: Sugar Bowl, Curvy Basin & Shadow Basin. On this day, we’ll take you all around the resort and you’ll get to see all 3 areas in 1 day.

Dinner is free & easy in town, or join the group for a dinner reservation!

Remarkables is world famous for its snow parks and you’ll get to witness some of the most interesting park lines, from beginner to expert features, as well as an urban park setup unique to its kind in the whole of NZ. For those up for it, our hosts will introduce you to park riding together with proper park etiquette & safety rules.  Groups will be split up by skill to ensure you only attempt features within your comfort zone. We’ll end the day early and head back into Queenstown for a free & easy afternoon. Give Queenstown’s most adrenaline pumping attractions a shot – skydiving, bungy jumping & canyon rafting, or decide on a more relaxing scenic hike long Queenstown’s lake trails. 

After an eventful day, we’ll end the day on a high with The Ride Side’s cook in night tradition with the group.

Today is a special day – we head up north for a day trip to Cardrona, or Cardie’s as the locals call it. Arguably the most raved about ski resort in NZ, Cardrona’s a real all-round stunner with pristine groomed trails, top fo the line resort facilities, pro-level snow parks (yes, chances are you’ll see pros riding just beside you lapping the parks at Cardies).

All in all, Cardrona’s a really fun resort to visit with lots going on. To make the most of the day, your hosts will take you to the areas that matter and provide some tips and tricks to beat the lift queues. For those who didn’t get enough of Remarkable’s snow park, take the day to lap some of the best shaped park features you will ever ride through.

Dinner will be in Wanaka before heading back to Queenstown as a group.

For your final day on snow, we’ll head back to Coronet Peak where we started the week. It’ll be your chance to see how much you’ve improved throughout the week and explore terrain you previously we not able to on day 1. You’ll be surprised at the progress you’ve made with 1 week of consecutive riding.

Friday nights at Coronet are special with Night Skiing and Apres Ski under the stars.

*Night ski passes (4-9PM) are an additional cost and can be purchased direct from the resort if you wish to stay for night ski. Also, availability of night ski sessions is dependent on weather conditions.

Dinner will be in Queenstown, where we will gather one last time as a group before we say goodbye!

Before you know it, Saturday would have come again and it’s time to say goodbye. Enjoy your final day in Queenstown, bid farewell to friends new & old and you’ll make your way to your next destination. We will be leaving together on the airport shuttle bus to Queenstown International Airport.
