there are a ton of resorts in NZ. the closest one to christchurch is Mt. hutt then theres roundhill about 3 hours away and alot more all around the country. the 3 best parks in nz in order are 1. snowpark 2. cardrona 3. the remarkables just google those names and you'll get all your info
remarks prob has the quietest park out of snowpark, cardies and remarks. its pretty cool but the lift servicing the park isn't high speed. but that just gives you more time to.. uhh.. enjoy the ride! if you want any more info on nz feet free to hit me up. i'll prob be living in queenstown next season
Mt Hutt is the best overall area near chch but there are a ton of clubbies to choose from which have sick pow runs which stay good for a few days after a dump. Mt hutt and Porters both have pretty good parks but they arn't close to any good resort over seas. If you want a really good park youd have to go south to cardies SPNZ and the remarks like people have said above. Anywhere you go in NZ youll be able to find some good skiing but the further south you go the better it gets.
