Off The Snow
You will be staying in the town of Springfield which is surrounded by rolling farmland with the mighty Torlesse mountains towering above.
There are a handful of cafés and restaurants as well as a couple of convenience stores for groceries. The area around the town is home to national parks, lakes, and rivers offering a full range of activities from rock climbing, skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, hunting, jet boating, horse riding and quad biking, making it ideal for outdoor enthusiasts.
Added to this is the city of Christchurch, the South Island's largest. It is only an hour away so you can often catch a ride with one of the locals or ski staff to see a movie or hit the shops, bars and eateries. The city is also known as the home of rugby. We are always keen for you to join us as we catch a live game. Here you will see some of the famous All Blacks taking to the field for the regional team Canterbury.
The weekend comes and so do the crowds to the slopes so if your not up the hill working you can head out and about and enjoy some of the adventures and sites that NZ is famous for and take some well earned time out to recharge the batteries.
