Life-changing experiences happen here

There is nowhere else quite like Queenstown.

Seriously spectacular on and off the mountain, Queenstown is a small southern town that punches well above its weight. Epic ski resorts, high-energy people, world-class trainers and endless outdoor adventures. There's a lot to love.

SITCo students live in Queenstown and train at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables, two of New Zealand’s best mountain resorts. While we think Queenstown is a pretty amazing place, we know moving to a new town can bring challenges, especially for our younger trainees. The SITCo team is here to guide and support you every step of the way. Whether it’s up on the hill, during daily life in Queenstown or when it comes time to plan your next steps after training.
