Snow Packages

Book - Weekend Warrior


Make a long weekend of it or take a quick mid-week snow break!

This 3 day snow package is perfect for those pressed for time but in need of a quick snow fix. With everything bundled together and ready to go, all you need to do is jump on the plane and prepare the legs. Once in Queenstown, our partners will pick you up from the airport, drop you at your accommodation, kit you out with all your gear, escort you to and from the mountain and drop you back to the airport with heavy legs and a smile from ear to ear.

We are passionate skiers and snowboarders and have bundled together a snow package that we are confident you'll enjoy & leave you begging to come back for more.

Want to tack on a jetboat or even throw yourself off a bridge? We can help you with that too! Simply browse the Thrill and Relax sections, choose your activity and add it to your suitcase for one simple booking.

Packages are based on Adult rates. 
For Child rates, Senior Rates or Family packages please enquire and we will happily send through a quote. 
We can add on Lessons, Clothing and Accessories or any Queenstown activities and tours as required.

New Zealand School Holidays: Saturday 4th July to Sunday 19th July
Australian School Holidays: Saturday 27th June to Sunday 19th July


There are loads of great winter events on in 2020, so plan your trip around these if you fancy taking part (or not!)

Winter Pride - Gay Ski Week: Sunday 30th August - Tuesday 8th September

How do I make up my own package? I can’t see one that suits me

Email us and we will be able to help with a custom itinerary.

Is clothing included in the packages?

No, however you can rent all clothing necessary where and when you collect your rental equipment.

Can I take a day off with the 3 day snow package?

Yes, you can take a break for one day free of charge when you hire equipment for three days or more. So you will have 4 days equipment rental included in this package for 1 non-ski day.

Can I swap between skiing and snowboarding on a package?

Yes, with the exception of the 3 day beginner package as it is recommended that you stick to one discipline during the learning phase. Chat to the rental staff on arrival and they can advise you.

Should I get a lesson if I have never skied/snowboarded before?

Yes. At least one lesson is recommended if you have never skied/snowboarded before. The instructor will teach you techniques and ways to do things to prevent injury. You will progress much faster in lessons with a qualified instructor rather than if you were to learn from a friend or just go for it on your own, meaning the rest of your ski holiday will be much more enjoyable.

Is there anything to do for non-skiers?

Yes. There is tubing at Coronet Peak and guided snowshoe tours available. Browse the Thrill and Relax areas of our site to see the numerous activities available to book in Queenstown. If you can get bored in the adventure tourism capital of the world there is something wrong.
