Snowboarding is one of the world’s fastest growing thrill sports. It all began in 1964 when an American bolted two skis together as a novelty for his kids. In 1994 snowboarding became an Olympic sport and it has gained in popularity ever since.


New Zealand ski fields have responded well to the demand by installing extensive terrain parks with massive groomed half pipes and a variety of ramps and obstacles. The June to October season entices many keen boarders to our slopes during the Northern Hemisphere off-season. New Zealand’s Southern Lakes ski fields near Queenstown and Wanaka are particularly user-friendly for snowboarders. Cardrona holds the New Zealand Open Half-Pipe Competition, which attracts many overseas boarders. Treble Cone around Wanaka in the South Island is perfect for intermediate or advanced boarders with great half pipes and lifts that reach the top of the mountain in six minutes. Coronet Peak close to Queenstown New Zealand’s adventure capital is a snowboarder’s paradise with consistent gradients and many undulations on the slopes. The Remarkables also close to Queenstown has great facilities including one of New Zealand’s longest sweeping runs called Homeward Bound. Whakapapa and Turoa on Mt Ruapehu in the North Island are New Zealands largest and most popular fields and offer great boarding facilities. Lift passes on all the commercial fields are generally around $50-60 per day and a snowboard and boots can be hired for a similar daily rate.
