Snow, Ski, Segway – all on the same mountain

Ski Resorts have been reinventing themselves as Summer Destinations, and the Segway Personal Transporter (PT) can be a real draw card for visitors all year round.

Take it to the top!

Public demand to take Segway Tours and enjoy Fun Rides just keeps on growing year by year. Ski Resorts are ideally placed to deploy a fleet of Segway PTs. Not only do they already have all of the infrastructure in place to manage these activities, their very location offers striking scenic attractions to explore. If your business is contemplating adding Segway activities view Segway, Inc.’s excellent short video (1:50) about this sector then be in touch with us at Segway New Zealand.

Business examples include Gunstock Mountain Resort (NH, USA) and Lake Crackenback Novatel Resort in the Snowy Mountains, Australia (reviewed in The Age here).

Here in New Zealand, Segway activities have operated at our two biggest “Ski Mecas” since 2006 – Taupo and Queenstown.

Located in the heart of the Volcanic Plateau and on the edge of New Zealand’s largest lake, Taupo’s extremes run from boiling mud to ice and snow. The mighty Waikato river begins with the thundering roar of Huka Falls, and some say Hobbits and Mount Doom can be found nearby. The North Island’s two largest ski fields are on Mount Ruapehu (Whakapapa and Turoa). Segway At Taupo offer Fun Rides and Lakeside Tours.

Queenstown is a extraordinarily beautiful location – and the adventure capital of New Zealand. Millions of visitors come to see and experience the sights and wonders, enjoy the awesome skiing and engage in wild activities. The town is especially popular with Australia skiers (as it boasts an international airport that receives direct flights from across the Tasman). Segway on Q offers Lakeside and Bay tours several times a day, and has just doubled the size of its Segway PT fleet to meet demand.

Based on demand over the previous two seasons both here and in the Northern Hemisphere, demand for Segway Tours and Fun Rides is showing no signs of abating. Rather, public interest and year-on-year growth is excellent. There are many great locations across New Zealand (and around the South Pacific) where business entrepreneurs can set up a Segway Activity – check them out then be in touch with us at Segway New Zealand.
