Ski, Play and Stay in comfort this winter with Crowne Plaza Queenstown

To celebrate the launch of its exclusive new Ski, Play and Stay Package, Crowne Plaza Queenstown is offering one lucky couple the chance to win a weekend to Queenstown for the 40th American Express Queenstown Winter Festival.

Widely known as Queenstown’s chic, friendly and cosmopolitan downtown hotel and the perfect ski destination, Crowne Plaza was runner up in the World Ski Awards last year as Best Ski Property and is a nominee once again this year.

Unwind in Queenstown this winter and experience some of the best snow in the Southern Hemisphere by day then indulge in Queenstown’s exceptional bars, restaurants and cafes après ski.

Priced from $750 NZD p/p twin share, the ski deal is exclusive to Crowne Plaza Queenstown and includes a minimum five nights’ accommodation (based on two persons twin share), complimentary breakfast daily, four day ski pass for Coronet Peak and The Remarkables (four for the price of three days).

Crowne Plaza Queenstown sales and marketing manager Kylie Walker said the ski package offered one of the best ways to ski and stay in Queenstown this winter.

“As Queenstown’s favourite ski hotel we’re privileged to be able to offer this exclusive package to snow enthusiasts. Imagine tearing up the slopes day after day then heading back to enjoy our famous après ski hospitality before retiring to your room to get ready for the night ahead?,” said Ms Walker.

“Relax in our chic-bar and sample our signature German-inspired white-mulled wine – infused with hazelnuts and NZ Manuka Honey. Alternatively kick off your ski boots and relax and unwind with a glass of Central Otago wine, warming hot winter cider or craft beer on our famous ‘Bed Bar’.

“A large day bed hidden away from the main area with sumptuous velvety cushions to lose yourself in, it’s an incredible spot to reminisce with friends about your day up the slopes.”

You’re at the centre of it all when you stay with Crowne Plaza Queenstown, enjoying the best in-town location overlooking stunning Lake Wakatipu and the spectacular Remarkables Mountain range.

“We also wanted to give one lucky couple the best start to winter possible and help them be part of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest winter celebration,” she said.
