Take your skiing to the next level

This really is the winter to take your skiing to the next level. With four different ski fields, each boasting wide open slopes and plenty of space, you'll be set up for success. 

For an extra leg-up, book in for a ski lesson! A few small tips, tricks and adjustments can totally change the way you ski or get you back on track if you’ve picked up any bad habits after a break from skiing.

Snow Machine combines skiing at Coronet Peak and the Remarkables with an epic music line-up in Queenstown, accommodation and adventure. Packages are sold out, but you can join the waiting list. 8-11 September 2021.

It's no surprise that Glenorchy has provided the backdrop for many films, including The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. There are a range of accommodation options, along with activities that will get you out into the great outdoors.

Let your hair down

The word ‘weeknight’ doesn't register in the mind of bar hoppers in Queenstown's town centre. Every night you'll find bartenders crafting cocktails, live music, pub quizzes and games nights, and more.

Skiers and snowboarders take to the town upon leaving the mountains to soak up all the  après ski action. Find hidden cocktail bars down small lanes, craft beer breweries and lively pubs ready to welcome you with a hearty meal and local brew after a fantastic day.
