    Are there any ski fields near Auckland? By near I mean couple of hours' drive away....instead of 4.

    we're going there for a wedding on a saturday and might have 8 hours free time on the fri to get some turns in....

    The closest ski field to Auckland is Whakapapa on Mount Ruapehu. It would be at least a four hour drive from Auckland or 2.5 hours from Hamilton.

    There's an indoor snowdome in Auckland.

    The nearest 'real' snowfield, Whakapapa is way too far.
