What fantastic treats await you in the All-Star’s New Zealand Powder Tour?

ski skiWe had a benefit to review the ski holiday and snowboard holiday vacation resorts around New Zealand. We were checking out different tour operators in New Zealand and we found All-Star Adventures — perhaps the country’s top travel company. Below is an overview of the Powder Storming New Zealand tour the company provides to skiers and snowboarders: From August 23 to September 1, 2014, All-Star Adventures will take you to middle Earth. But, the journey is just not about a magical ring or journeying on the way to Mount Doom.



It is a trip of your life across world-class ski and snowboard territory and untracked powder snow! Even Frodo Baggins will be jealous of you if he learns about the experience that awaits you on the greatest ski and snowboard journey to the Queenstown – Wanaka region. Your trip will take you first towards the beautiful town of Wanaka. Get settled in your comfy accommodation and have a tour out and about before settling in for a wonderful dinner in one of Wanaka’s well-known attractions. Wanaka hosts one of the best skiing places on the planet. Treble Cone is the top and the greatest ski field area in the Southern Island of New Zealand.


In addition, it has the longest vertical drop at 700 meters. Not for the newbies, it has the highest ratio of black runs in the nation. On the flip side, Cardrona (another stop on All-Star’s tour), is known as a popular destination for family vacations and beginners because of its groomed slopes. After a day of grand adventure, relax and enjoy the home baked cookies, homemade ice cream or a beer as you’re watching the latest movie in town only in Cinema Paradiso. The nightlife in Wanaka is filled with vigor. Prominent pubs just like: Shooters Bar, Red Rock and Fitzpatrick’s Irish pub provide you with after-dinner drinks and live amusement. Queenstown, New Zealand’s adventure center, has some of the most heart stopping escapades you’ll ever enjoy like: bungee jumping, paragliding, zip lining, skydiving, cat skiing, heli skiing, jet boating and many others. Visit top notch ski resorts like Coronet Peak (the country’s first commercial ski field) and The Remarkables. If it isn’t enough, heli skiing that will fly you over the magnificent Southern New Zealand Alps is included in this trip. The powder hound within you will definitely love the experience of skiing down the virgin snow covering the Southern Alps of New Zealand. The tour will not be complete without seeing the Northern regions where the Lord of the Rings was shot. Do you want to go where the famed Hobitton was set? Ever thought the spot that the Gardens of Isengard is located? Do you know that Edoras — Rohan’s main city — was built on Ashton district’s Mount Sunday?
