have done Queenstown to death over past 20 years & want to ski Treble Cone & Cardrona next year. Have driven from Queenstown to Treble Cone, but last time did it, everyone else complained about the drive which was 90 mins each way from memory. Plus Cardrona lot closer from Wanaka. But how do we get there from Australia ? Thought Air New Zealand flew from Christchurch to Wanaka, but it seems they canned those flights last year. google maps say a 5 hour drive from Christchurch, but is that realistic in winter ? Guess we can fly to Queenstown & drive from there, but as some of our group wants to go back to Queenstown, want to avoid flying in there if possible. Dunedin airport ? Google says 3 hours drive & avoid Queenstown. Anyone will any suggestions ?
