Need some help working on how to get to one of our courses?

Ride Sharing App

A common occurrence is that candidates work out their own transport for the first day, then once they meet their group they can try and organise alternatives including ride sharing/cost sharing.

After research and consideration NZSIA has decided to support Snow Riders NZ – a free social carpooling network for skiers and snowboarders.   Their mission is “to help snow sports enthusuiasts connect with one another, save money through our partner network and reduce greenhouse gas emissions when travelling to our ski fields”.   

Join our whānau to post your next trip to the ski field. Offer your spare seats or search for rides offered by other members. Find your ride at –  sign up and then connect with other people heading up the mountain.


Buses and Resort Shuttles

There is usually some form of public transport/bus service to each resort that we operate at. Below are some links to information to help get you going:

Coronet Peak, Remarkables, Cardrona, Treble Cone, Mt Hutt, Turoa, Whakapapa, Snowplanet, Ohau and Rainbow (may need private transport for the last two).

Always check bus timetables before you commit to public transport. Ensure the bus arrival time at resort is well before the start of your course so you have time to get ready and allow for the bus getting delayed.

Please be aware, if staying in Queenstown – catching the bus to Cardrona does not make it in time for the start of the course. You will either need to find another form of transport or stay in Wanaka.

Rental cars

Some of the main rental car companies in New Zealand:

Jucy, Avis, Hertz, Thrifty

Or search a variety of companies  at the same time:


Depending on which town you have based yourself at, resort you are going to and the budget you have for transport – a taxi or Uber may be an option for you. For a taxi contact your local taxi company and for Uber, check out the app.
