QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand - Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa has been named New Zealand's Best Ski Hotel in the inaugural World Ski Awards, which took place in Austria on November 16.

"To be chosen as the top ski hotel out of all of New Zealand is a real honor," said Andrew Nisbet, general manager, Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa. "We do our best to offer those extra touches for our skiers and snowboarders, providing everything from on-site rental service to equipment drying rooms. We are excited that our efforts have been recognized at the World Ski Awards and are already looking forward to welcoming guests when the next snow season begins in June 2014."

The 220-room resort is the closest accommodation option to The Remarkables, one of the region's most popular ski destinations with cloud-piercing peaks close to 2,000m high and 220 hectares of diverse terrain. Within 50 minutes, guests can also access the slopes of Coronet Peak, Cardrona, Snow Park or Snow Farm.

Guests can enjoy après-ski dining in the casual Stacks Pub or soothe sore muscles at the award-winning eforea: spa at Hilton. All guest rooms at Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa feature schist rock fireplaces to lessen the winter chill.

The World Ski Awards are a division of the World Travel Awards, known as "the Oscars of the travel industry." Judges for the competition included tourism industry professionals, as well as avid skiers and snowboarders who travel the world in search of powder and fresh tracks.
