There are not many places in the world where you can ski fresh powder in the mornings and spend the afternoon/ enjoying the beach or surfing some waves on sunset. New Zealand has large mountains, deep lakes and white sandy beaches, all within half a days drive away!
If you are looking for a fun bubbly resort town full of epic adventures then Queenstown is your best pick! It is New Zealand's adventure capital as it has an unlimited amount of terrain to explore. Although Queenstown has over half a million visitors each year, you are guaranteed to be able to find a nice quiet spot on the beach to enjoy your fish and chips after a hards day riding!
Our other South Island resort is a short 40min drive from a small, resort village called Methven. Methven is a very friendly town with a real sense of community. It offers lots of potential for outdoor recreation as it is right on the doorstep of Hakatere Conservation Park one of the largest in NZ. Our newest resort Mt Ruapehu is the only mountain in the North Island and is situated high up in the National Park! We love it because it is located in one of the best places to explore all New Zealand has to offer.
