How long have you got and what all do you want to see?

April is generally too early for snow. You might get lucky with a cold snap and see some fresh snow on the mountains but you'd have to really, really lucky to see it at ground level. Realistically, to see anything that resembles snow, you'll need to helicopter to a glacier.

We need more information. If you have only 1 week, flying in to CHC and out of Queenstown would be best, although I didn't know there were flights to SIN from ZQN.

If you have 10 days or more you can drive a loop from CHC to QTN & back.
