Winter Ski Holiday
Wanaka is New Zealand's favourite ski resort for those who are passionate about their skiing and snowboarding. In winter Riverrun provides the perfect ski lodge, close to town yet with big mountain views of both skifields. We enjoy an unmatched variety of snow sports, snowboarding or skiing Cardrona and Treble Cone skifields, heliskiing the Southern Alps, snowboarding the terrain park at Snow Park or x-country touring at the Snow Farm. The terrain and quality of snow is generally agreed some of the best in the Southern Hemisphere. Between them, Cardrona and Treble Cone resorts provide almost 900 hectares of terrain, excellent services and stunning views. The resorts are friendly and uncrowded and the terrain ranges from beginner to advanced, with great off-piste country as well as groomed trails. Modern facilities and a lack of queues make the experience all the more enjoyable. Just over an hour's drive away are Queenstown’s two fields, the Remarkables and Coronet Peak.
