Winter: Jun, Jul & Aug

Cardrona Ski Area

While city-dwellers are hunkering down and rugging up, it’s time to head to the mountains and hit the slopes for those into snow sports.

The South Island’s alpine resorts such as Queenstown and Wanaka are in their prime. Kiwi kids have another two weeks of school holidays in July and resorts will be packed with families.

All Black rugby test matches against other countries keep the nation enthralled through winter.

The weather starts to warm up in August and before you know it, spring is rolling around.
