Treble Cone

Treble Cone is not only the largest ski area on the South Island, but it is also home to the region’s longest vertical drop, at 700 metres. This, combined with its average of more than five metres of snowfall per season — the highest amount in the country — makes Treble Cone an ideal choice for intermediate and advanced skiers. Located just a 30-minute drive from the town of Wanaka, Treble Cone is blessed with breathtaking views of Mount Aspiring and Lake Wanaka below. Although only about 10% of the terrain is suitable for beginners, Treble Cone’s natural beauty will appeal to just about everyone.

Craigieburn Valley

Located about two hours’ drive northwest of Christchurch, this is something of a haven for expert-level skiers and snowboarders. In fact, Craigieburn and Treble Cone boast the highest proportion of black runs in New Zealand, with 45% of the landscape categorised as advanced terrain. Untamed and uncrowded, Craigieburn contains the kind of powder-filled bowls that are usually hard to come by without access to a helicopter. Free from any kind of artificial grooming, the entire area is technically off-piste — which makes Craigieburn a fantastic playground for adventurous and independent skiers.

Broken River

Just a 15-minute hike from Craigieburn is where you’ll find the Broken River Ski Area. This area receives the same generous snowfall as its better-known neighbour, yet contains fewer vertigo-inducing black runs. Although the terrain still has plenty of chutes and steep basins to keep advanced skiers busy, the atmosphere is easy-going and welcoming. Broken River’s sheltered bowls and reasonably avalanche-safe access road allow it to operate more often than nearby ski fields. Broken River is also relatively unknown, which means that savvy skiers could have the powder all to themselves.

If it is your first time travelling to New Zealand, a choice of where to go first is ahead. 

There are waterfront restaurants and black-sand beaches in Auckland, acclaimed museums and historic cable cars in Wellington, and adrenalin-spiking pursuits of Queenstown. Or perhaps you will be lured in by the vineyards of Marlborough, wildlife encounters around the Bay of Plenty, and the mountains and glacial lakes found in Otago.

Those already acquainted with the wonders of New Zealand can look towards long-awaited reunions with friends and family, as well as lesser-known experiences, trips to smaller townships and encounters with remote landscapes.
