Day 4: Continue to Ski

A great day to go back and check out your favourite ski mountain.There will be time to stop and admire the reflection in Mirror Lake, the views down the Hollyford Valley, and literally drive through the mountain via the Homer Tunnel and emerge back into a landscape of spectacular mountains and waterfalls. Fur seals and bottlenose dolphins are often seen and, on the odd occasion the rare Fiordland Crested Penguins can also be out playing. Our afternoon cruise is an intimate look into the history and geology of the Fiord while exploring small nooks and crannies along the edges, nudging into sheer rock faces to examine flora and fauna in detail and is sure to be a real highlight!

Day 5: Continue to Ski

Queenstown is perfect for everyone from the adrenalin junkie to the leisure seeker - there is just so much more to do off the mountains. You can exchange your Superpass towards a number of local off mountain activities (check with your crew for these). You can always chill out in a local restaurant, cafe or bar, or simply chill out by the lake. Tonight we will regroup in town for another meal together and catch up on what everyone has been up to.

Have a little sleep in to recover and head up to the mountain after lunch for an afternoon and evening of twilight mountain action. With a DJ on the hill, BBQ meals and bars, your afternoon and night of skiing is sure to be a huge highlight. Once back down from the mountain the partly life of Queenstown awaits and with an endless choice of favourites, we are sure you will have a brilliant final night in this Ski Town Central.
