(Newswire.net — March 30, 2017) — Wanaka-based tour operator New Zealand Ski Packages, who organizes all-inclusive winter holidays to NZ’s most famous skiing resorts, has now collected all ski lift ticket prices for this year’s season into one handy infographic. This helpful resource provides travelers with a clear breakdown of costs for lift passes at all 19 skiing resorts in the country.
New Zealand’s Southern Alps stretch along the entire length of the South Island and rise up to 2,000m, which makes them larger than the Swiss, Austrian and French Alps together. With snow conditions suitable for adventure seekers and families of all levels, an extensive heli-ski terrain, access to untouched back country and countless options for non-ski activities off the mountain, NZ continues to draw in skiers and snowboarders from all over the world.
To make it easier for travelers to choose from the numerous world-class skiing resorts, NZ Ski Packages created an overview of lift prices for all skiable mountain resorts throughout New Zealand’s South Island. Their local experts compared the data from NZ’s largest ski areas Queenstown, Wanaka and Canterbury, but equally analyzed the lesser known fields, such as Nelson Lakes, Hamner Springs and Arthurs Pass.
The infographic provides a well-arranged outline of daily lift rates for the upcoming winter season, split into adult, children and student fares. Other factors included are free admission for children and the age limit attached to it – an important aspect for families. Apart from that, the infographic matches the type and number of lifts available for each resort, shows if it is a commercial ski field or a club ski area and provides other unique features of some terrains.
Arguably, the cheapest resort is Snow Farm with $40 day passes, although it is designed for cross-country skiing only. Around the smaller resorts of Canterbury, average lift prices are at $75-80 a day, while the more off-beat club fields like Fox Peak or Hamner Springs can already be accessed at $60. The world-class Mount Hutt area offers great value for families, with day tickets at under $100 and free admission for children under 10 years. NZ’s most popular ski and adventure resorts Wanaka and Queenstown sell their passes at $110-120.
