Queenstown in Spring – Time for a Spring Fling

2/9/2013 | Posted in Discover Queenstown

Grab a couple of days and enjoy epic spring skiing in the Queenstown snow fields

How about just booking that flight for a quick spring fling with Queenstown’s ski areas?  Time is running out on the 2013 season and with recent fresh snow, the skiing and riding is epic right now.    

Heli-skiing is in full swing and the commercial ski fields quiet and friendly.  No queues mean more runs and when your legs fail, the ice bars high on Coronet Peak and The Remarkables have really upped the game this year with superb Pinot Noir based mulled wine, beers and bbq snacks.  Bean bags in the sun, bratwurst and beer in hand, looking out over the majestic Southern Alps – it’s hard to beat and it’s available for just a few more short weeks.     

Downtown the town’s atmosphere is laid back and relaxed at this time of year. The bars and restaurants are unfurling for spring with outside tables and chairs appearing on the sidewalks and pedestrian streets and garden bars opening.  

All our apartments and villas make a perfect base for a ski holiday - spacious, modern and well-appointed. Garaging, places to store and dry skis and wet stuff make it all pretty easy. Chef kitchens make self-catering fun and there’s an apartment layout to suit pretty much every couple, group or family.    

Our Lake Ridge Condos and Esplanade Queenstown Villas are easy walks to and from town while Village Queenstown apartments, located on the sunny side of Frankton Arm are just 10 minutes by water taxi, or 15 by car/bus from the action.  

And all of us at Staysouth are diehard skiers and snowboarders - local people who know and love our mountains and can point you in the direction of a great ski day out.  Checkout our great range of  ski accommodation here.
