Snow

Your guide to the white stuff

Queenstowners have been playing in the snow since way back. From skiing and snowboarding to mountaineering and snowshoeing, there's a whole host of fun you can have in the snow. 

June, July and August are Queenstown's winter months, but (weather-dependant) many activities run until September. Temperatures sit between -2 and 8 degrees and though occasional snow falls in town, most of it stays up in the mountains! Check out this list of things to do on the snow.
