Solo Traveller and first time skier

05 Jul 2015 - 11 Jul 2015

This trip was my first ever group tour trip and I really loved it. I had such a great time and I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is a solo traveller and/or has never been to the snow or skiing/snow boarding before. Just make sure to pack lots of warm clothes - or if you want to pack lightly - pack good quality thermals!

I had never been to the snow before and I made the mistake of just getting cheaper thermals and they were not warm enough. (for example I had to wear 3 pairs of pants thermals (underworks brand level 1 warmth) and 3 thermal singlets plus 3 t-shirts under my ski pants and ski jacket to keep warm).

So easy - everything is organised for you!

Winter Wonderland!!

06 Jul 2014 - 12 Jul 2014

Before I head into it take this into account before booking this tour: if you have never skied or boarded before, this tour probably isn't great. You more than likely wont enjoy it as much, but still you can have a lot of fun. Lessons arn't organised for you though, but gear is if you haven't got you own.

BUT this tour was pretty bloody good!! I was lucky when I was there, the people on my tour were awesome and we all got along really well. Being a pretty good skier I loved it and the weather was perfect. Blue sky's and heaps of powder, what more can you ask for!! 4 days skiing and with day in the middle to jump off cliffs, bridges, boat rides and all that good stuff was awesome and went out for dinner and drinks every night, and you don't have to head out for a late one if you don't want to. But the nightlife does go off!

Also there is some time to explore which I loved, you do get a bit of freedom. And the scenery is unreal, I got some awesome photos of mountains and the lake at Queenstown. Absolutely stunning trust me. So if you can ski or board at all, I recommend it. I'd go again for sure!!

100% worth it for a solo traveller

25 Aug 2013 - 31 Aug 2013

If you are a solo traveller and don't want to organise everything yourself - this trip is perfect for you! All your buses up to the mountain are included, your ski passes, breakfast every morning and your accommodation which makes this a whole lot easier.

best week of my life

18 Aug 2013 - 24 Aug 2013

by far one of the best trips i have ever been on. great bunch of people on the trip, plenty of time boarding, and enough time to get drinking... the day off in the middle of the week was good, did white water rafting and the nevis bungee/swing combo (highly recommended), but should've stayed an extra day or two after the tour ended to do all the other things i wanted to do...
