Queenstown, New Zealand
New Zealand wasn’t even close to being on this list when we first conceived of it. After all, it’s the land of hobbits, and all we can imagine is rolling green hills and amazing sunny weather. But that’s not true year-round. From Early June to April or so, the region around Queens town is covered in snow in the higher elevations. This is great as it gives you a great way to have both snow, and you know, no snow. Win-win, right? Like most winter vacation destinations, there are a ton of amazing winter sporting opportunities in Queenstown during the time where snow is on the ground.
