Remember that $1 coin you lost down the back of the couch? You'd better start looking for it because that spare change could get you a weekend in the heart of the South Island, New Zealand.

Ski Holidays in Canterbury New Zealand

The great news is this fabulous promotion is just the beginning of even more exciting 2 for 1 offers running throughout June and July.

To help shake off the winter blues and mark the winter solstice in style Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism is offering visitors to the New Zealand region the deal of a lifetime - a night's accommodation in a Christchurch hotel, or a selection of amazing activities for just $1.

"Your loose change can now get you that winter get-away you've always dreamed of,'' says Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism chief executive Christine Prince.

"For a $1 you can stay in the heart of Christchurch New Zealand, head off to the ski fields for some skiing or snowboarding or pamper yourself at the thermal pools and spa at Hanmer Springs. Or you might just want to stay put in the city, exploring the open fires in the laneways, boutique shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars that give Christchurch so much vibrancy over the winter months.''

The $1 deal is only available online, for a stay on the night of Saturday, June 20 to mark the winter solstice. Activities can be enjoyed on either 20 or 21 June so you can make a weekend of it!

The new official Christchurch & Canterbury website, is the only place to book these exclusive deals from Monday 8 June to Friday 19 June.

"With many of the region's tourism operators running their own promotions over the winter and Jetstar now offering more low-cost flights into Christchurch there's never been a better time to visit the region,'' Ms Prince says.

Joining the '$1 movement' - Canterbury's biggest ski-field, Mt Hutt, is auctioning a range of great deals for skiing and snowboarding with some auctions starting with a reserve price of $1.

The ski deals are also available where you can pick up a $1 adult pass or link off to the live auction. Auction items up for grabs, some of which have 'buy now' prices set, include lift passes, combo packs, lessons, rental gear, and retail items.

"We're hoping as many people as possible will take advantage of these fabulous deals to have a winter escape and to experience some of what the heart of the South has to offer. There is very limited availability and conditions do apply, so consumers are encouraged not to miss out - and check the site regularly for these sensational offers.

"The great news is this fabulous promotion is just the beginning of even more exciting 2 for 1 offers running throughout June and July."

Go to from Monday 8 June.
