Win Your Winter

Jun 27, 2022  ·  3 min read

Well, well, well – if it isn’t winter setting her icy touch upon the nation! While it may seem a strange thing for our Australian friends to hear, the snow and cold is where this town pops a bottle and thrives! Historically, Queenstown only opened for the winter season – summer was the gentle reprieve when everyone took a breath, shut down the shops and kicked back along the deserted streets – now, we rage every day of the year, with something for everyone.

Lake Whakatipu

Winter is, and always will be, a true win for this little alpine village. The sun rises with bold colours, and skims along the spiny ridge– the glaring frost of silver snow showing the bones of the mountains against the artistic expression of mother nature painting the sky. With our floor to ceiling windows – you can’t miss a beat of the ever-changing view. You can stay wrapped in your robe, hot coffee in hand and watch the day whisk by, or, you can get out there amongst the action and make snow-angels to your hearts content. With our borders now open and a juicy free-for-all, we just can’t WAIT to see your rosy cheeks barrel with delight in to our waiting arms – bathtubs stacked with bubbles, cheeky cocktails to kick-start your stay, and breakfast in Bazaar to set your morning riding high. Think epic gram shots with a colour pallette inked in moody hues and contrast set to max, luxurious pink skies at dusk, the cosy crackles of dry kindling on an open flame, and the warmest wraps of merino we are so fantastically famous for. 

Reds Bar looking out at The Remarkables

Win your winter with a mix and match of everything – we are here with the goods – giving you a home base of alpine luxe interior to compliment your epic adventures of the day. Helicoptering up to a glacier? Follow it with a piping hot bath you can stretch right out in. Jumping out of a plane? Visit Red’s Bar afterwards for a calming tipple and bartenders ripe to swap your stories. When the snow comes so thick and fast you can barely see, take the chance to watch movies and relax as it flurries past your private balcony. When the storm passes, don your boots and a fluffy scarf to crunch your way through the fresh snow – the team will point you to the good stuff. There really is nothing quite like it.

Grab winter with both hands and wake up to epic views across Lake Wakatipu. Transport yourself from where you are, to where you want to be for the deeper months of the year. We’re here, and we are so ready to see you.

Stay and play your way.
