We're looking at going to NZ for a week to stay at a snow field. (Me, DH and DD who is 2).
We're not looking at a die-hard ski holiday - more a family thing, where we can have some fun in the snow, and do sledding/ toboganning, etc. as well as a bit of skiing/ boarding.
I'm from England, and am a bit more familiar with the slopes in Europe (not close-up pro familiar - just aware of the kind of thing that's there), so I'm not sure where to look in NZ.
What we're after is to be able to stay on the slopes (chalet style) or very close (but ideally on), in some kind of ski village. A lot of the European ones have lovely ski villages with shops, restaurants, all the apres ski stuff, as well as the chalets/ cabins you stay in.
Any recommendations? I've been looking through websites, and am a bit lost for where to start, and what has that kind of 'feel' I'm after. Hope that all made sense! Not sure I explained it fantastically...
(Not too worried about cost, but probably more toward the 'nice' or luxury end than the backpacker/ 'student' end of what's available).
