Default Go to NZ

I'm a Kiwi so I'm a little bias - strangely enough, I'm going to recommend NZ all the way! Sadly, I can't give you a break down of the South Island resorts as I've only ever boarded on Mt Ruapehu in the North Island but there are a number of ski fields down south so if you allowed enough time, you could do a 'tiki' tour around, see a lot of the island and hit quite a few of the resorts as well. Travelling in winter, you should expect a fair bit of rain - particularly on the west coast of the South Island. The scenery in the Sth Island is stunning - check out Extreme Skier (world heli challenge), near Wanaka | Stock Photos of New Zealand, Africa, Australia and Fiji | davidwallphoto.com

You've probably already googled these but just in case, here's a few links to some of the fields in the South Island:
