Summer skiing

Ski bunnies take note - for summer 2009, Chile and New Zealand's South Island are emerging as highly desirable destinations. From June, Coronet Peak on South Island embarks upon its 7-month ski season, where highlights include a spanking new 89 million litre snow reservoir, heli skiing, snow tubing and a full complement of graded slopes across 12 commercial ski areas. Areas used as sets in the Lord of the Rings trilogy provide familiar scenery, but there's also the chance to ski Mt Ruapehu- a semi-active volcano and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Adrenaline junkies won't be disappointed either- New Zealand's 'extreme sports' reputation precedes it. From £1,808, Bridge and Wickers are offering a 10-night break during peak season in July and August- and, for an additional fee, will organise equipment hire. Visit www.bridgeandwickers.com or call 020 7483 6555 for more. Meanwhile, the Valle Nevado ski resort in the heart of the Andes boasts 'some of the best snow in Chile', a highly advanced ski lift and competitive prices for snow lovers on a budget. Weeks in June and September can be had for £3,716pp including flights, half-board accommodation, and unlimited access to ski facilities and such luxuries as massages and saunas. Log onto www.lastfrontiers.com or call 01296 653 000. The sooner the better- the company highly recommend early booking for the best deals.
