Ski New Zealand/Queenstown


#1

Hi just seeing if anybody else is doing the ski new Zealand trip on the 30th July - 5th August 2017?
I’m travelling from Perth Australia and travelling solo, also haven’t seen snow before so will be a definite rookie on the slopes haha.
also plan on doing all the extra stuff like skydiving and bungee :slight_smile:

Hi Andrew, I am thinking of booking the same tour! I’ve skiied a few times before - I am sure you’ll pick it up super easy! Will you be in Queenstown before/ after the tour to?


#3

Hi Brittney, I will be arriving a day early on the 29th and leaving on the 7th, so just going to spend the days exploring/looking around. Will have to get some ski tips off you haha, when are you going to be there?


#4

hey guys i’m thinking of booking this trip, i’ve never been skiing in my life so i’m very excited! i’m 19 and from melbourne australia


#5

Hey Bianca, definitely keen as well! Taking a GoPro to film the stacks haha, are you going to stay after the tour??


#6

hahahaha 100% bringing mine it’s going to be such a laugh to watch! do you think it will matter if we haven’t got a clue how to ski or snowboard?


#7

I don’t think so, the first 2 days you can do lessons if needed (I will need this haha), I’ve read it’s cheaper to buy a ski jacket too rather than hiring!


#8

Hi! I just booked onto this trip also :slight_smile: I am also travelling solo from Canberra. I’ve skied twice and found it pretty easy to pick up one you learn how to slow down and stop haha


#9

Hey Courtney! Awesome I’ll see you there :slightly_smiling_face:
What’s easier snowboarding or skiing??
Are you getting there before/ staying after the trip?


#10

Hey Andrew. I have only skied and that was almost a year ago so can’t compare unfortunately :grimacing: I’m flying in on the 28th and out on the 7th

Hey Guys! Hopefully you’re all getting excited for the big trip! My brother and I were supposed to go on this tour together but looks he will be unable to come now. So now I’m a lone wolf traveller but still keen to show how awful i am on the slopes. I second the idea on lessons. I’m staying an extra night prior to the tour starting. Would be cool to meet some new faces on the tour. Cheeeers :ok_hand:t3::ok_hand:t3:

Hi everybody, I am also coming in a day early so I have decided to spend the night at The Pub On Wharf at 88 Beach St. I have never been to Queenstown so it should be fun to wander around and see the sights before the actual ski trip starts. :slight_smile:

Hey Mitch and Darren, will see you both there, have to catch you for a couple of brews tomorrow night​:beer:, I’ll be looking for somewhere to eat and wandering around for the day, I’m staying at the Lakeview holiday park for entire trip. See you there :grinning:
