Experience Queenstown in Winter
Queenstown is your ultimate winter holiday destination, with four world-class ski resorts, one of the best après-ski and nightlife scenes, and a huge range of activities and experiences off the mountain too.
Queenstown is the perfect base to hit the slopes of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone. These four ski resorts are easily accessible within a 20–90-minute drive of the town centre. Each mountain features an extensive variety of skiable terrain so there’s something suitable for all abilities and styles.
For the ultimate powder hound experience, spend the day exploring the backcountry terrain with one of Queenstown’s heliskiing operations. Or if you’re looking for a new snow experience, from snowmobiling to snow shoeing or tobogganing, Queenstown has you sorted.
Known as the Home of Adventure, Queenstown also offers a range of iconic activities and experiences off the mountain too. Relax in one of the many day spas or stunning outdoor hot pools, sip award-winning Central Otago wines and taste your way around the region, or test your limits with a sky dive, jet boat or bungy jump.
The vibrant town centre also boasts one of New Zealand’s best après-ski scenes with over 150 bars and restaurants to keep the fun going well after lifts close.
