POLL RESULTS: Most kiwis staying home for winter

This winter has been very eventful so far, with plenty of snow, wind and rain in parts of the country – so maybe it’s no surprise that Kiwis prefer to stay at home during the coldest months of the year.

We wanted to know how many of our readers took a midyear break to ski, snowboard or see the beautiful winter sights – or whether we save up most of our holiday time for the warmer months.

Well we got our answer – with 70% of those who voted saying they either never or seldom ever take a winter holiday or vacation – and the remaining 30% split down the middle by those who go every year or most years.

With just over half of the season left, there’s still plenty of time to change your minds and check out some of our incredible winter scenery!
