- Ski or snowboard at Queenstown's major ski resorts
- Choice of shared or private accommodation
- 2-day lift pass that can be used at some of Queenstown's top ski resorts
- Stay in a central location with Queenstown's nightlife within walking distance
If you love your time on the slopes but don’t want to be limited to just one resort, this is the way to go! The 2-day lift pass gives you access to major ski resorts in the Queenstown area.
Three night's accommodation with round-trip airport transfers and breakfast daily is included at Reavers Lodge. Located within walking distance to Queenstown bars, restaurants and outdoor activities, Reavers Lodge has a spa pool, communal kitchen, guest laundry, on-site ski rental, nightly entertainment programs and shuttle bus service. There are three options for accommodation.
Self-contained Studio Loft Room:
Twin or double bedding in an upstairs loft with a separate living area with kitchenette downstairs
Double, twin, triple or quad lodge rooms with own bathroom
Shared Lodge Room:
Shared lodge room that sleeps up to four people with shared bathroom facilities
See Itinerary section below for details on the resorts and equipment rental.
Ski, boots, poles, snowboards and ski wear can be hired in Queenstown from the Reavers Lodge. Prices start at NZ$20 per day.
Transportation between Queenstown and the ski resorts:
New Zealand's ski fields do not offer accommodation. To get to the ski resorts, you must either drive yourself or take a mountain shuttle. Both car rental and the shuttle can be arranged at your accommodation. The shuttle from the Snow Centre in central Queenstown starts at NZ$15 round-trip to the Remarkables.
Just a 15-minute drive from Queenstown, Coronet Peak, with its roller-coaster terrain across interconnected bowls, is perfect for an exciting day on the slopes. It has its own snow-making system, a dedicated beginner area and is ideal for all levels of skiing and snowboarding.
Located 25 minutes from Queenstown, this beautiful, high alpine location has wide open bowls surrounded by rugged peaks. There are back country areas and three terrain parks that offer challenging excitement for skiers and riders who want to hit jumps, rails and other trick features.

Awesome trip! My only complaint about this is (as you will read elsewhere) the location is not the best because you have to climb a steep hill with all of your gear to get to/from the shuttles to the mountains. We walked by so many other more convenient locations. Also, I'd probably avoid the shared accommodation in the future, but it was a great price and the roommates were nice. (Note, you can choose other lodging at Reavers, that was just what we picked).
