Snow is finally falling in New Zealand

After great weather meant little snowfall on New Zealand’s legendary ski resorts, the country is rejoicing as winter has finally arrived with the settling of fresh snowfall. To make up for the small amount of snowfall received recently, ski resort managers were forced to use expensive snow cannons to artificially create slopes suitable for skiing. The arrival of decent winter snow comes as a relief to the ski resorts, and is great news for anyone travelling to New Zealand. The snowy mountains are one of New Zealand’s most beautiful characteristics and are a favourite with skiers and non-skiers alike. Whether looking for the best slopes around, or simply wanting a holiday with astounding scenery, winter in New Zealand is a great destination. Our escorted New Zealand tours offer visitors the ideal opportunity to see the best of the country, offering plenty of excursion ideas to fit exactly what kind of holiday you are looking for.
