Wanaka Weekly

18 August 2011

Wow, what a week its been!  A huge dump of snow has really set the ski fields up for the rest of the season!

Although it did cause a few disruptions to the beginning of the 100% Pure NZ Winter Games, the events over the last few days have been all go!  Local lad Jossi Wells took out second place yesterday in the freeski halfpipe, and the freeski slopestyle is being held today at the Snowpark.


Congratulations this week go out to SkyDive Wanaka on their 16th Birthday.  What started out as a very small business run from a couple of deck chairs, has grown into a very well known, must do attraction.  Great work guys!!

And also a big congrats goes out to Puzzling World. They were recently ranked 6th in the top ten family attractions in New Zealand, according to the People's Choice Awards by Kids Friendly Travel.

We are very excited to annouce our latest package deal with Harrris Mountain Heli-Ski.  Get 5 nights accommodation (including breakfast and apres ski) teamed up with a fabulous 1 day heli-ski (4 runs).  $1110pp based on twin share and available for the month of September.

We have loved seeing some familiar faces around the Lodge this week and always enjoy hosting our return guests.

Until next week, stay safe and warm!

Kylie, Mandy, Wayne and Te Wanaka Lodge.
