New Zealand ski fields map

A list of 25 North Island and South Island ski fields on a map for easy access and with links to official New Zealand ski field websites.

ADVERTISEMENTS

There are 25 ski and snowboard areas in New Zealand, 18 of which are commercially operated ski fields. The rest are mainly run by nonprofit ski clubs.

Of the commercial ski areas, only a few offer onsite accommodation, which means that for most of them, nearby towns and resorts provide bed and après ski entertainment.

Whakapapa – on the northeastern slopes of Mount Ruapehu on the North Island of New Zealand – is New Zealand’s largest and busiest ski area.

Turoa – on the opposite side of Mount Ruapehu – gets plenty of dry snow from July to September and has the biggest vertical drop of any ski resort in Australasia.

Snow Farm – accessible from the Cardrona Valley between Wanaka and Queenstown on the South Island of New Zealand – is New Zealand’s only commercial cross-country ski area.

For the approximate opening times of New Zealand ski fields, please refer to the article, When do New Zealand ski fields open? Also keep in mind that opening dates of ski fields depend on weather and snow conditions, so the dates are not set in stone.
