Even though we are enjoying summer weather here in the northern hemisphere, in New Zealand it is ski season! At Terrace Downs, just at the foot of the southern Alps and Mt. Hutt, is a new privately owned resort with restaurants, 18-holes of golf, spa experiences, luxury accommodations and a fabulous new helicopter service that takes five minutes to get to the base of the ski area. The helicopter rides are only NZ$65 each way and allow the passenger to soak up breath-taking views on the way to the mountain. The villas, vistas and views make this getaway down under one gorgeous stop.
