With four incredible ski fields less than 90 minutes from the town centre, there is no better place to indulge in winter sports than in Queenstown in New Zealand. Surrounded by breathtaking alpine scenery and boasting world-class ski terrain suitable for all abilities, it’s no wonder that this vibrant resort town has earned itself a reputation as a premier destination for winter holidays.

Coronet Peak & The Remarkables are the ski fields closest to town, and both are perfect for fair weather skiers and boarders. A little further out towards Wanaka you will find Cardrona & Treble Cone ski fields, the latter of which is the largest ski area on New Zealand’s South Island. For the more adventurous, there are a few Queenstown heli-skiing operations, where you can take a helicopter into the spectacular Southern Alps and then ski or board down the untouched virgin snow.

After an exhilarating day on the snow, Queenstown offers a vibrant après ski scene with indulgent day spas, bustling bars and award winning restaurants. Gather round a crackling open fire with friends as you review the days activities while enjoying a glass of local Pinot Noir.

Of course, your NZ ski holiday would not be complete without the perfect ski accommodation, and the good news is that Queenstown boasts some of the most luxurious ski villas in the country. Read on to discover 21 of the best luxury ski villas in Queenstown that are all close to the ski fields and to the lively town centre.
