Queenstown is the best place in the Southern Hemisphere to go skiing.

For visitors from the northern hemisphere – ski season in Queenstown runs from June to October. It’s winter down here when it’s summer in the northern hemisphere. Queenstown is a proper mountain town in New Zealand’s Southern Alps. There’s 4 large commercial Ski fields within an easy drive of Queenstown, and some amazing heli skiing/boarding too.
