The 3 Coolest School Holiday Activities for Kids in Auckland


Snowboarding at Snowplanet - School Holidays

Snowboarding is undoubtedly the coolest activity in Auckland. If you can’t take the kids to the mountain this holidays, then bring them to Snowplanet. We have perfect snow and clear visibility all day, every day. And we are only 35 minutes from downtown Auckland. If your kids are just learning Snowplanet has perfect beginner slopes. For experienced boarders we have enough jumps and rails to keep them entertained all day. Boards, boots and clothing are available for rent if you don’t have your own. Helmets are compulsory for all skiers and boarders. We understand many parents have to work through the holidays if that’s the case you can put them into our school holiday program (bookings essential) and we can keep them entertained.


You guessed it. Skiing had to make the list. If you’re looking for a fun activity this school holiday to get your kids off the couch, off the screens, and doing something active; then skiing at Snowplanet is the perfect choice. It’s indoors so your plans won’t be spoiled by bad weather. They can learn by themselves, book an individual or group lesson with an instructor, or if the kids already ski they can just hit the jumps and rails. It‘s a perfect tune up before a family trip to the mountains. Best of all its just as much fun for Mum and Dad. If Skiing is not your thing you can enjoy a flat white by the fie and watch the kids from the comfort of the restaurant.

Snowtubing - School Holidays

When we say cool we literally mean cool. Grab the kids this school holidays and head to Snowplanet, where kids of any age (and their parents) are sure to have a blast. Snow Tubing requires no previous experience and is suitable for kids and adults of all fitness levels. Remember to dress warmly with waterproof boots (Gumboots are fine). Or you can rent suitable boots and clothing at Snowplanet. The purpose built Snowtubing track keeps the snow tubers separate from the skiers and snowboarders; and the new kid size snow tubes make it easy for the kids to carry their own tube back up the lift to ride again and again. With family passes (2 adults and 2 children) for only $89per family. View current pricing here. It’s great value, and a brilliant way to introduce children to the snow this school holidays.
