New Zealand's landscape together with winter weather create ideal snowboarding conditions for all levels. Adrenaline produced by a wonderful ride down the steep slopes and truly breathtaking views of spotless snowfields will surely become your life-long experience. Most internationally renowned snowboarding resorts are located in the South Island. Coronet Peak in Queenstown and Ohau that lies between Oueenstown and Christchurch are known to be the most popular ski areas. Although the majority of rocky snowfields are found in the South Island, the North Island has also something to offer. It is noted for its skiable volcano at Mt Ruapehu.
