DAY 1 - Arrive Queenstown
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?
DAY 2 - Ski Queenstown
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.
DAY 3 - Ski Queenstown
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.
DAY 4 - Queenstown
Three days left, anyone ready to hit the slopes again? Then you should opt to head to The Remarkables with us. Heard of this place? 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. But if you're busy having the ski or the snowboard of your life, feel free to stick around at The Remarkables for the rest of the day. 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.
DAY 5 - Ski Queenstown
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.
DAY 6 - Ski Queenstown
It's our final day, so let's make every moment count. For those of you who can't get enough of the powder, enjoy more free-time to ski and opt for a session to hit the slopes. Everyone else can explore the thriving city of Queenstown. There's loads to do here, so take your pick. Go hiking up the Tiki trail, try a famed fergburger, or take an inspiring day trip to the Milford Sound.
DAY 7 - Queenstown
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?
