    Do you intend to make Christchurch your base? If so, the nearest skiing resort and slope is at Mt Hutt which is about 1 hour away. Otherwise head to Queenstown where you can choose between Cadrona or Coronet Peak. Queenstown/Wanaka is a better option because you can find budget accommodation especially Wanaka where accommodation/food etc are generally cheaper than Queenstown and the skiiing packages cost less.
