Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Contiki's 7 Day Ultimate NZ Ski. Hit the slopes of the the South Island's dominating Southern Alps, home to New Zealand's premier ski areas. And while each ski area has is own unique character, they are all framed against NZ's stunning scenic backdrops - lakes, rivers, lush green, golden plains, dense forest, and blue ocean. The air is crisp and clean, the scenery amazing and the snow wonderful - lets go!

Itinerary

Welcome snow squad! Here in Queenstown we have one very clear and common agenda: the perfect week of powder. Whether you're a pro, mid range or beginner, the world-class terrain here is suitable for all skill levels and abilities, and we'll be testing out three of the Southern Hemisphere's best ski fields: Cardrona, Coronet & The Remarkables. Tonight, we'll start off by getting cosy over a team dinner and sharing our enthusiasm for the week of adventures ahead. Later on, it's our first chance to hit up the Queenstown nightlife - shall we start as we mean to go on? (D) Stay: Jucy Snooze Hotel (or similar)

It's our first day hitting the slopes, and today we've set our sights on the Cardrona Alpine Resort. Ready to start sharpening up your skills, or attempting to find new ones? With 40km (almost 25 miles) of slopes available, plus the Southern Hemisphere's most extensive terrain parks & pipes, you'll be spoilt for choice. Powder white below and blue skies above, this is going to be legendary. And if the mountains aren't enough, we've got the option of a thrill ride on Queenstown's Shotover Jet or a paddle over the Dart River with Funyaks. (B)

Rise and shine! Today is dedicated to snow, snow and more snow. Though your body may be feeling the pinch, the mountains won't shred themselves! The best way to get through it is to get back out there - and today we're bound for the Coronet Peaks, the area's 'original' and most extensive ski resort, with views over Lake Wakatipu. Collapsing into bed tonight, we'll sleep soundly before our well-earned free day tomorrow. (B)

With a free day today, it's time to get a taste of the endless adrenaline-fuelled activities in the 'world's adventure capital'. This is your chance to try the historic Kawarau Bungy jump, the 300m Nevis Canyon Swing, the freestyle Ledge bungy - or all three! Tonight, you can wind down by heading to one of the town's lakefront bars, or take up the option of a dinner at Skyline Restaurant for some seriously unbeatable views. (B)

We have two days left on the slopes, and now's the time to really start making it count. Cue The Remarkables: ranging from park to roller-coaster terrain, this Alpine resort boasts sun-filled bowls, world-renowned chutes and the Burton Stash - a one-of-its-kind concept park for the Southern hemisphere. If you've finished kicking it on the slopes, you can choose to take the adrenaline up another notch (yes, this really is possible in Queenstown) by chucking yourself out of a plane with NZone Skydiving. (B)

It's our final day in the ski fields, so let's make it count. Today we'll head back to Cardrona to finish where we left off. Now's the time to assess your skill level - push yourself to that run you've been eyeing up and make the most of our last day on the slopes. If you haven't mastered Cardrona yet, this is your shot! (B/D)

Our time in the snow may be over, but the memories will last forever. Time to take yourself back to where you belong, but make sure you swap numbers so you can relive the best parts of your Queenstown extravaganza. Same time next year? (B)
