Well the entire country has been covered in a blanket of snow, but we aren’t complaining! After a slow start to the season the extra powder was very, very welcome. And just in time for the NZ Winter Games – we’ve had more than a thousand athletes descend on us for two weeks of action packed events and some great parties! Today marks the second day of competition and already Wanaka’s own Jossi Wells has scooped two second place spots on the podium. If you are currently visiting Wanaka I urge you to try and checkout the action on the slopes, it’s not often we get the opportunity to witness some of the world’s best in action. And if you prefer to stay dry and warm (like me!) then head down to Kai on Ardmore street from 5:30pm onwards for the Winter Games prize giving’s and great live music. (Not to mention the occasional fire dancer!)
With the Winter season in full swing we are extremely busy here at Clearbrook, to the extent that we have been forced to employ some slightly unusual seasonal staff to cover the front desk … I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!
