    Probably Queenstown or Wanaka - ski areas Remarkables, Coronet Peak in Qtown, and Cardrona and Treble Cone in Wanaka. Both within an easy drive, depending on where you base yourself. almost 10 years ago

    The Queenstown area is beautiful and has good fields, but is expensive. There are good club (smaller private) fields nearer Christchurch, as well as Mt Hutt which is a larger (by NZ standards) commercial field.

    There's little serious off piste skiing in the North Island.

    Please note that NZ snow conditions can be treacherous off piste. If you're not experienced and equipped for travel in avalanche country you're better off sticking to the fields. almost 10 years ago

    I loved Abel Tasman national park and in case you are heading there you must stay at Kimi Ora which is right at the entrance and is within walking distance of the park....it is also close to Nelson and the berry farms are really great for berry picking and fresh ice cream! over 9 years ago

    Taupo is awesome! Plenty to do and not too far to drive to Mt Ruapehu for snowboarding and skiing! Nice places to eat, plenty of adventure tourism activities to do like bungy jumping etc I love Taupo :) Where ever you decide to go have a great time! over 9 years ago
