Queenstown is a breathtaking city on the southern island of New Zealand. Set along the bright blue waters of Lake Wakatipu and surrounded by soaring mountains, it’s no wonder nature lovers flock to this city for outdoor activities and exciting things to do. Queenstown is home to some of the best ski spots in the country, which is why skiing is a popular sport here. The Remarkables Ski Area and Coronet Peak ski resort are both right near the city center, and many accommodations in town are so close that they are considered ski-in, ski-out lodgings. That means you can go from zooming down the slopes or dropping off your gear to enjoying the apres-ski atmosphere downtown in just minutes! If you’re still undecided about where to stay in Queenstown, don’t fret. Read on for our picks of the top ski-in ski-out accommodations in Queenstown, New Zealand.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to ski slopes and equipment. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 07, 2024.
