About the Winter Games NZ
There’s no better place to be than the Southern Alps during Winter Games NZ. It’s the biggest party on southern snow!
The Games are one of the world’s leading elite winter sports competitions and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. Winter X Games and Olympic stars all come here – this is your chance to meet them and watch them compete at the highest level.
It’s not just about the sport on the mountains. There’s also an exciting downtown festival with hospitality, live music, award ceremonies and an adrenalin-packed Adventure Film Festival, all free to watch.
Host towns Queenstown and Wanaka are easily accessible international lakeside resorts just an hour apart. Spectacular scenery, fantastic dining and shopping, iconic adventure activities and off-mountain attractions make them the perfect venues for every taste and budget. Don’t miss a trip to the historic gold rush town of Naseby for the curling tournament; it’s a place like no other in New Zealand.
Winter Games NZ is a uniquely Kiwi experience that athletes, coaches, judges and spectators all rave about. The relaxed atmosphere, the friendly people, the on-mountain action and the downtown fun – it’s all here and it’s all free to watch!
