Snowplanet is the best place in Auckland to discover your love for snowsports. If you’d like to learn to ski or snowboard, you can try the beginner’s slope. The more seasoned pro will enjoy the full feature terrain park. Kids and adults who are not into snowboarding or skiing can enjoy snow tubing instead. Even the little ones will be happy to stay by the sides to do a bit of snow play.
Gloves and a waterproof outer layer are absolutely essential when visiting Snowplanet. If you forget to bring these, you can hire them along with snow jackets and pants. The temperature inside the snow dome is around -5 degrees C, so wear warm clothing.
During the Christmas Season, they turn part of the dome into a Winter Wonderland with Santa’s castle.
