New Zealand Ski Holiday in Lake Wanaka

Lake Wanaka is a great winter holiday destination. The largest skiable terrain in Australasia combined with a top ski town - Lake Wanaka has everything you'll want from a ski resort and a whole lot more.

You can hit the wide groomed slopes or jib & jibe the top parks and pipes at Cardrona, get the legs burning with big verticals at Treble Cone, plus cross country at Snow Farm and when you are too tired to ski or snowboard then take a day off and try some of our great Attractions and Activities. We guarantee to have something for everyone.

Now with Flexi Pass you can get the best of Cardrona and Treble Cone for 3 or 5 days with one great pass and enjoy discount off other activities as well.
