Today we woke up to a stunning day, blue sky, bright sunshine and most importantly …. a thick blanket of snow covering the mountains!!! After a somewhat dismal ski season last year (the less said on that the better however!) the arrival of our first proper snowfall has left us excited for the upcoming ski season. Mount Roy, Mount Aspiring, Cardrona and the Treble Cone ski field are all covered in a heavy layer of snow, and despite the bright sunshine it is showing no sign of melting. Even the Crown Range mountain pass had a decent covering! I think it is safe to say now would be a good time to start waxing the skis (or snowboards), dig out winter gear and book a winter holiday! The anticipation for this season has been building for the past few months, with bookings flying in thick and fast from all around the world. We are excited to host guests from the USA, Australia, France, Germany, Thailand and many more far away locations, all with one goal in mind – a fantastic ski holiday! The local ski fields are working overtime to put together great package deals for guests, and this year there are more transportation options available for ever. So all in all, if you were hesitating about whether you should bite the bullet and spend some time on the slopes in one of the most beautiful places in the world, now is the time to book those flights and of course give us a call to secure luxurious (and warm!) accommodation. If you have any questions about a trip to Wanaka, or would just like to chat to a local about what the winter experience in our ski town is like, please don’t hesitate to call or email us at any time and we will do whatever we can to make your holiday one to remember!
Finally, here are a few photos taken today that may just make up your mind for you!
