Wanaka Weekly

10 August 2011

Another stunning day in paradise!  Not a cloud in the sky, the lake is like a mirror and the snow is perfect!  Reports from the mountains this morning were to bring the sunscreen rather than the thermal tops!

Most of the guests staying over the last week have been here to ski, but we have also hosted some wedding guests and a couple that jumped from a plane at 12,000 feet with Skydive Wanaka - WOW!

Contact EPIC (NZ's ultimate mountain biking challenge) entries are now open so for those of you who have always wanted to tick this off your list be sure to get in quick!


Congratulations go out to the Mills family at Rippon.  They are featuring in the recently released Country Calendar Cookbook with Allyson Gofton.  Talking about Rippon - looks like an awesome line up finalised for the Open Air Concert on the 4th February next year.  Always a fantastic weekend so get in early and book your accommodation with Te Wanaka Lodge or Wanaka Selection.

Congratulations also to 2 local athletes Simon Maier and Dougall Allan who took out top honours at last weekends Peak to Peak in Queenstown - well done!

Do check into the skifield websites to keep up with all the latest and for details on the Burton Open and 100% Pure NZ Games.

And remember to check us out on facebook and now also on twitter!!

Have a great week

Kylie, Mandy, Wayne and the Te Wanaka Team.
