Safety is a top priority throughout our days of fun activities. In addition to our staff, Professional Ski Patrol service all of the resorts that we ski. The country of New Zealand as a whole is very safe. And, the community of Queenstown where we base our trip is a very safe community in general.
Safety in Queenstown:
Queenstown is a small resort town with a very low crime rate. This resort town can be compared to towns like Aspen and Sun Valley in the United States.
The resort area where this tour operates is very safe and crime-free. However, all clients should be responsible for their gear and equipment, lock their doors when they leave to ski for the day, and not leave things like ski bags, laptops, and bright, expensive ski jackets unattended as these attract attention. It is highly recommended that clients buy travel insurance before they come down, both for things like theft and also for flight and baggage delays.
Currency and Money:
New Zealand uses the New Zealand dollar (the Kiwi), which is equivalent to about $0.75 USD. Most businesses also take American dollars. You can exchange money at a local bank in Queenstown or at the airport as you travel. ATMs are available at locations around the downtown area. Visa credit cards are also widely accepted.
There is a local health clinic as well as a large modern hospital in Queenstown. Services like X rays, evaluations, and other preliminary procedures can be provided, and the clinic has its own doctor on staff. Most simple health treatments and visits are covered by New Zealand’s government. However, travel insurance is highly recommended to cover what is not.
Medivac helicopter and several modern ambulance/paramedic services. Procedures requiring payment at the time of service can be reimbursed via your Travel Insurance or international health insurance using the receipts collected at the hospital or clinic.
Kick back and enjoy the ride. We provide airport transfers and daily transport to the local resorts and off snow activities. All drive times are short, and the scenery is so breathtaking you’re attention will be captivated along the way.

The trip was amazing, breathtaking, motivating, refreshing, fun. It was absolutely the best skiing trip I`ve ever been on. When I signed up I was thinking `even if half of what they claim is true, it`ll be amazing`. I was a bit scared of expecting too much and getting disappointed, but in reality it was better than anything I had hoped for.Evan (UK)
Wow, wow, wow… what an amazing trip. Everything was just awesome… our guides, the mountains, the scenery, the cool locations, the food… the Kiwi people. Thank you for a great time, when you say ‘time of your life’ …you aren’t kidding!Mike (New Jersey, USA)
Thanks for an amazing trip to New Zealand. I had a great time exploring with Adam. He really took his time and helped me to develop my riding. Thanks to Adam I was able to conquer some fears and really take my snowboarding up a level. Thanks again.Danielle (California, USA)
