Beyond the slopes, the vibrant town itself buzzes with après-ski energy, offering cozy lodges, charming cafes, and an array of winter activities, making it the ultimate destination for a skiing experience like no other. Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie seeking challenging runs or a leisurely skier looking to enjoy the stunning scenery, Queenstown’s ski offerings are sure to leave an indelible mark on any winter adventurer’s heart.



Nestled on the shores of the crystal-clear Lake Wanaka, the town of Wanaka in New Zealand offers a picturesque and exhilarating escape for skiing enthusiasts. Boasting access to two premier ski resorts, Treble Cone and Cardrona Alpine Resort, Wanaka captures the essence of a winter wonderland. Treble Cone, known for its vast and challenging terrain, provides a thrilling playground for advanced skiers and snowboarders, while Cardrona caters to all skill levels, making it an ideal destination for families and beginners.
