Snowboarding new zealand
Snowboarding New Zealand with a campervan rental from Spaceships is a great way to get around and get stuck into the epic terrain that is New Zealand. The season in New Zealand is from June-October. This can vary slightly but on average is close to five months long. There is a great variety of snowboarding in New Zealand with fields in both the North and South Islands.
New Zealand is blessed with both big and small fields offering snowboarders challenging terrain, a variety of culture and price. There are more adventurous club fields scattered across the South Island. These are generally smaller but steeper fields with less people. There are some great fields tucked away in the Southern Alps ready for you to explore.
As well as the smaller club fields there are larger more commercial fields accessible from Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown. The majority of the fields are in the South Island with only a couple in the North Island.
It is an easy drive from one ski field to another in your campervan rental. You can pick up your New Zealand campervan rental from Auckland, Christchurch and Queenstown. From Christchurch you can be skiing in 1.5 hours and Queenstown 15 minutes!
Spaceships are available with snow chains and roof racks through winter. The hire rates are so cheap in winter why would you hire a rental car when you can travel in a Spaceship and stay in accommodation along the way. With a Spaceship you can cook lunch on the field, have a cold drink, listen to your iPod and even watch a DVD!
