The countdown to winter in Queenstown is on and we’re dreaming of fresh powder, epic adventures and themed evening parties that only Snowriders can provide!
After a year of lockdown, 2021 will be our biggest yet!
We’ll be heading back to Queenstown in July for more powder, punch and promiscuity.
Join QUT Snowriders for the best 8-day ski trip of your life!
Big nights out every night with 62 of QUT’s finest, skiing and boarding by day in Queenstown’s stunning alps.
This is one trip you don’t want to miss!
We start with a quick flight to Queenstown, New Zealand on Qantas QF185. You will have a generous 30kg bag allowance. This should be plenty to bring everything you will need.
On arrival in New Zealand we have a private transfer to take us to our accommodation at Nomads Queenstown
The Remarkables, where the terrain and facilities have something to suit everyone from first timers to seasoned, expert skiers and snowboarders.
Today we have a private transfer to take us to Cardrona.
Cardrona lies on the Crown Range Road, a steep, mountainous route between Queenstown and Wanaka.
Today we are heading to Coronet Peak which has world-class facilities, roller coaster terrain and is Queenstown’s closest ski field.
Surrounded by majestic mountains and set on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, today is the day to kick back and relax, with that being said Queenstown is the adventure capital of the world… you choose!
We’re heading to back to The Remarkables today.
It’s your last chance to enjoy the world-class facilities and roller coaster terrain at Queenstown’s closest ski field.
Its sadly that time of the trip where we need to head back to home.
We fly out at 4:00pm on Qantas QF186 and will land in Brisbane at 5:55pm
