Our Queenstown winter is heralded by the arrival of snow and the start of our ski season.
The Glebe is located in the heart of Queenstown with easy access to the town centre and a short walk to the welcoming fires of local cafe's and bars.
When the snows come, Queenstown transforms into a winter paradise, attracting snow sports enthusiasts from around the world with its stunning alpine scenery, crisp blue-sky days and easy access to some of New Zealand's finest skiing.
