4 Day Queenstown Snow Fix

Rating
Welcome the ultimate long weekend in Queenstown, the “Adventure Capital of the World” and undoubtedly the best place in the South Pacific to soak up the winter vibe.

This package includes 3 days skiing or snowboarding at Cardona, The Remarkables and Coronet Peak and plenty of time to sample the ample Queenstown nightlife.

Tours officially ends on a Tuesday, after breakfast, but we would encourage you to stay an extra day or two to get your adrenalin kick, or take in the stunning Milford Sound, or head back to the slopes.

Like any Haka Tour we include everything you need for a stress free week - the full list is below, and we have snow packages to suit all skill levels.

Day 1: Queenstown

Your airport transfer will be waiting for you to transport you to Haka Lodge Queenstown. Check-in available from 2pm, though feel free to drop off your gear if you arrive earlier. We are happy to arrange any pre-tour activities you would like to bolt on if you want an early jump-start on adventure!

We are located centrally, so cafes, restaurants and bars are just a short stroll away. We get started officially at 4.30pm with a welcome meeting where you will meet your Tour Manager and other tour members.

Tonight we “break the ice” at Minus 5 Ice Bar followed by a shared dinner in at the Rhino Shack, but before we do that, if you've opted to hire ski/snowboard gear we'll pick that up.

Additional Activities • Nevis Bungy • Paragliding • Kawarau Bridge Bungy • Extreme Jet Boating • Horse Trekking at Glenorchy • Skydiving over The Remarks

Day 2: Cardrona

Breakfast is between 7.30am and 8am this morning with an 8.15am departure to Cardrona. Cardrona is renowned among skiers and boarders for inspiring terrain and dry, natural snow. With 320 hectares of wide, undulating trails, open slopes, steep chutes and awesome terrain parks, there’s something here for all to enjoy. A wide area of the mountain is serviced by chair lifts, so access is easy and queues are rare. Cardrona's three basins offer wide-open spaces and a mix of terrain that's suitable for snowboarders and skiers of all abilities. On-mountain facilities include five cafes, a shop, hire facilities and a workshop.

With over 20 national and international skiing and snowboarding events held at Cardrona each year, we may make slight amendments to our tour itinerary if we feel any events would add value to your Haka Snow experience

For those that have selected a “Beginner” your morning on the mountain starts with your first lesson at 10:20am and the second at 1:00pm

Day 3: The Remarkables

On offer today for your delight: wide open trails, native Keas, powder snow, spectacular views, sun drenched terrain and unforgettable runs. There's terrain here like you have never seen before, and, if you're prepared to exercise the legs a little, you will discover some of the longest off-piste runs around.

The Remarks (as it’s known to the locals) is set in a vast natural amphitheatre high in the rugged ranges at the eastern end of Queenstown’s Lake Wakatipu. Being so far up is a major plus, giving the ski field a long, reliable season – and the north-facing aspect makes it a natural sun-trap.

If you purchased a “Beginner”, then today you have your final lesson, to get you ready for Coronet Peak.

Day 4: Coronet Peak

With outstanding views over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu, Coronet Peak is the oldest and most developed ski area in the South Island. Spread across a broad mountain, the field is wide and sunny with an astounding variety of runs, and the on-field facilities are some of the best around.

Coronet Peak has dedicated slopes for first timers, long, wide groomed trails and plenty of choice for more experienced skiers. Once you know the ropes, you'll enjoy the vertical off the express quad, or exploring the rolling terrain with plenty of dips and drops for great variety. For boarders, Coronet Peak is a natural terrain park, full of endless hits and powder stashes!

If you have not yet sampled the local nightlife, be sure to head out with your fellow travelers for a hot meal and some liquid refreshment. Your guide will see you tomorrow morning for a farewell breakfast before some of you head off home.

But why not stay on?

Don’t book your flight to go home too early and miss out! Queenstown is home to a huge choice of adrenaline-based activities from skydiving, bungy jumping, canyon swinging, para-gliding, zip-trekking and jet boating to name just a few. You can extend your Queenstown winter experience at Haka Lodge for just $31 per night.

Your Tour Manager will be on-hand in the morning (Tuesday) to book any additional activities for you and to give you a local’s perspective on what are the best options for you today.

If you’re not looking for an adrenalin kick but love stunning scenery and nature, then we suggest a Milford Sound day trip with a cruise. For the super keen skiers and snowboarders, we can arrange an extra day on the slopes (chat to your guide) or a heli-ski for the intermediate to experience.

Spend four days in Queenstown, the undisputed ‘jewel in the crown’ of New Zealand tourism and undoubtedly the best place in the South Pacific to soak in the winter vibe.

This tour is perfect for those of you who want a long weekend to mix things up, with some skiing/snowboarding as well as soaking up all Queenstown has to offer

We includes three days skiing or snowboarding. The mountains we visit are Cardrona, The Remarkables and Coronet Peak.

Best of all, you will be based at one place: our very own Haka Lodge Queenstown for the duration of your holiday.  As our tour ends after breakfast on the Tuesday, you can opt to stay a few extra nights to make the most of all the Adventure Capital of New Zealand. Talk to the team and they will book and recommend some of the not to be missed activities.

Unlike our other tours, this one kicks off  later in the afternoon, so take your time getting to Queenstown, settle in at the lodge, and at 4.30pm be ready to kick off an awesome NZ winter holiday!

While the tour officially ends after breakfast on Tuesday,  you can opt to stay longer to explore more of Queenstown and it’s activities, take in the stunning Milford Sound, or head back to the snow again – your guide will take care of all the details.
