Want an adrenaline injection? Ski New Zealand.
New Zealand has possibly the finest skiable terrain in the Southern Hemisphere. Head to Queenstown for access to the Remarkables and Coronet Peak, where 866 Hectares could entertain you for weeks!! Skiers and Riders of all abilities are catered for in NZ. This year Boarders are in for a special treat at Remarkables, with the opening of "The Stash", a 1km long freestlye cruiser, with only two others like it worldwide this prodigy of Jake Burton will be worth riding if you do nothing else this winter!
On the mountain or off, it's all a party! There are opportunities to face your fear at every corner. You can party every night of the week in season, but the hairy road climb up the mountain the next morning from Queenstown is enough to sober anyone up.
Singles, groups, the Kiwis cater for it all, they especially do a great family snow holiday, with accommodation options ranging from great value budget apartments to world class Hotels. The Kiwis have always been known to be a bit crazy, who else would ski on an active volcano? For something very different Mt Ruapehu on the North Island has half pipes carved out by Lava flows!!
For a more mature time go off piste to Wanaka, the tranquil views over the lake from Cardrona will take your breath away, or only 70 minutes from Christchurch is the convenience of Methven, only a short drive to the powder of Mt Hutt.
Whatever you do take it easy on the Tui's (yep, that's Tui's not Toohey's) and make sure you try some Kumara Chips, they're choice with Sweet Chulli and Sour Cream!!
