Crowne Plaza Queenstown and NZSki have teamed up to offer an attractive American Express Queenstown Winter Festival experience worth nearly $3,000.
The lucky winner will receive five nights’ accommodation for two at Crowne Plaza Queenstown during the opening weekend of the festival (June 19 – 24 2015). The hotel was voted ‘New Zealand’s Leading Ski Hotel 2014’ at the World Ski Awards.
The winner will also receive two tickets to a festival comedy show as well as a four-day ski pass for Queenstown’s closest ski areas, The Remarkables and Coronet Peak.
To enter, people are invited to simply upload an image of how they are coping without snow to Crowne Plaza Queenstown’s ‘Shuttlerock’ social page. The number of entries in the prize draw are increased when the entry is shared with friends – more ‘likes’ equals more chances to win. The prize will be officially drawn by Winter Festival organisers on April 1, 2015.
The centrally-located Crowne Plaza lakeside property is already popular with fans of New Zealand’s premier ski resort for its handy location and ‘Ski Stay Play’ package.
This combines five nights’ accommodation and full buffet breakfast with a four-day ski pass, enabling guests to focus on the great skiing and riding Queenstown has to offer.
Queenstown is known for its exciting vibe and year-round activities, but the American Express Queenstown Winter Festival stands out as one of the biggest and most well-loved events on the resort’s calendar.
In 2015 the festival will once again feature live music and entertainment, and skies lit with fireworks in the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest celebration of winter. Crowne Plaza Queenstown’s sales and marketing manager Kylie Walker said the competition package was the “perfect way” to celebrate winter and enjoy the best of Queenstown.
“Queenstown always has something special to offer, but there’s nothing quite like the winter festival vibe on the mountain and downtown,” she said.
“Crowne Plaza Queenstown is at the centre of it all – the hotel balcony is a prime spot for watching the festival fireworks.
