Winter is coming.

As winter rolls in, Queenstown gets ready to make the most of the mountains during the season for snow sports. To celebrate this, the whole town turns out for the Winter Festival, the largest winter celebration in New Zealand.

Skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, all kinds of mountain sports will be on the programme, coupled with lots of fun activities and entertainment. Don't miss the cross-dressed athletes racing through an obstacle course, or the many demonstrations of various snow sports. But the highlight of the festival has to be the Mardi Gras parade.
