Queenstown is well worth a visit year-round. But the city does get all four seasons, so if you're planning to hit the slopes at The Remarkables or Coronet Peak while in town, make sure to visit when the conditions are just right.
Early July and September is just before peak-season starts and before the large crowds descend upon the slopes. By early July, the lifts would have been running for up to a month and a decent base should coat the slopes, with most of the terrain open. Similarly with September, this is toward the end of the season, but most runs are still open at this time. Since the peak months are mid-July and August, most of the crowds should have dissipated by now.
If you're not a teacher or travelling with kids, we also recommend coming before or after the July school holidays. These will be some of the busiest weeks both in town and on the slopes, which drives demand for accommodation way up. You'll find this is the most expensive time to go.
Mid-July to the end of August bring the best conditions to Queenstown's ski resorts. This is mid-winter, when the temperatures are at their lowest, meaning there's less of a chance of slushy or icy conditions.
Compared to surrounding months, July sees the least number of days with precipitation, so you'll have the greatest chance of bluebird days by travelling then.
Keep in mind July school holidays will be the busiest time.
June and October, the beginning and end of ski season in New Zealand are the cheapest months to travel while you can still hit the slopes. However, this may mean fewer runs open and slushier conditions. If conditions aren't ideal once you're there, you could still be in luck - late-June is also when the Queenstown Winter Festival is on.
While lift pass prices may not change much throughout the season, there's less demand for flights and accommodation in Queenstown right at the beginning and right at the end of the ski season. This usually brings a drop in prices as well.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of banks, insurers and product issuers. We value our editorial independence and follow editorial guidelines.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.
Please note that the information published on our site should not be construed as personal advice and does not consider your personal needs and circumstances. While our site will provide you with factual information and general advice to help you make better decisions, it isn't a substitute for professional advice. You should consider whether the products or services featured on our site are appropriate for your needs. If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle.
