Rightio, we are in the thick of winter now and the ski fields are off to a roaring trade – Mt Hutt and Treble Cone both have 3+ metre bases! We have some sweet all-inclusive ski packages on offer this month.

And if the cold isn't your thing, there are some half price hotel deals going in Australia currently. We've listed five of our favourite foodie events in and around Aotearoa over winter and spring. But wait, there's still more – you could win an iPad Mini simply by telling us a bit about your travel patterns.

Cheers!
