Some of New Zealand’s top ski spots are reviewed by worldwide online ski site On the Snow, including “the quirky ski field that is home to Burton’s The Stash, a natural terrain run with eco obstacles.” “Cardrona is 320ha and is one of the very few resorts in New Zealand where you can stay on mountain … Mt Hutt is served by the small town of Methven. This is the best ski and snowboard mountain in New Zealand on a good day. It gets more snow than the resorts down near Queenstown, has 360ha of skiable terrain and another 150 of inbound backcountry and a fantastic transition between the levels. The North Island boasts the country’s largest ski areas, of Whakapapa and Turoa, together that’s about 1050ha of skiable terrain.”
