NZ's Snow Highway heads to Aus

New Zealand’s Olympic medalist Nico Porteous has teamed up with Christchurch Airport and three of South Island’s regional tourism organisations (Christchurch NZ, Mackenzie Region and Destination Queenstown) to launch New Zealand’s Snow Highway.

The highway is a new product designed to attract Australian ski tourists taking in the very best snow experiences the South has to offer.

The airport’s general manager of trade development, Scott Callaway is leading a delegation that launched the highway at three Kia Ora SOUTH events, hosted by Porteous, in Australia.

‘A key highlight of the New Zealand Snow Highway is the opportunity to ski the Tasman Glacier on Mount Cook – that really captures imaginations and it’s great to be able to shine a light on some of our unique snow experiences,’ says Callaway.

The New Zealand Snow Highway starts in Christchurch, before heading south to Mt Hutt, meandering through the McKenzie’s ski areas and Mt Cook before ending in Queenstown with its four areas of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Treble Cone.
