South Island ski deals & the Coromandel

Deals of the week   |   Secret Sale   |   My Shortlist

Ahh May. It’s one of those months: the days are shorter and the temperature is dropping, but not enough to ski – yet. We are past the glut of public holidays and have winter to look forward to.


It’s not all doom and gloom though! This month we have some sweet deals in the Coromandel (a brilliant spot to escape the winter blues), great ski packages in the South Island, and we celebrate the re-opening of another Christchurch hotel.


You’ve also got another fortnight to nab some sweet secret sale deals, and Queen’s Birthday is just a few weeks away.


Have a great weekend ahead!


Two Coromandel gems

We want to celebrate the onset of winter, and what better place to escape it. Coromandel has topped the Travelbug poll of Kiwi’s favourite getaway locations for the past two years.

Check out these two beauties below!

Wairua Lodge, Whitianga

Wairua Lodge, Whitianga

Rates at this firm favourite, just 12km from Whitianga, include breakfast and use of the Treetop bath house and night sky spa pool. 100% positive Travelbug reviews too.

Hot Water Beach Holiday Park

What a way to warm up over winter! Choose from dorm, cabin or villa style accommodation at the TOP 10 Holiday Park. (And don’t forget your spade.)

Ski deals in the South Island

Snow Excuse

Snow Excuse – South Island ski deals

Snow Excuse has some incredible deals this winter, from beginners packages to deals for the “hard core”. Packages include transport, airport shuttles, lift passes in Queenstown & Wanaka, and in most cases rental kit. Starting from $359 per person.

NZSki ski pass and accommodation packages

NZSki have paired up with accommodation providers to offer some sweet deals for all levels of budget. Starting from only $319 for two nights & two days skiing at Mt Hutt, or $540 for five nights accommodation & four days skiing in Queenstown.

Methven Travel

Methven Travel – to and from Mount Hutt

Mt Hutt had a good dumping of snow last week so fingers crossed a good season beckons! The guys at Methven Travel have great rates for transport to and from Christchurch, but also return shuttles from Methven to Mt Hutt. Shuttles from $20 per day.



And that’s all for May. Have a great weekend ahead – keep warm and keep an eye in your inbox over the coming weeks for some sweet Queen’s Birthday deals.
