We love mountains

My thoughts and experiences cycling, snowboarding and travelling around the world

Winter in Wanaka

Although the snow is never phenomenal the scenery makes up for it in NZ. This was a good 20cm powder day in the Cardrona backcountry. Treble Cone near Wanaka was the pick of the ski resorts on south islands for me during my season there. It is still small with 3 lifts but has so cool terrain. The even smaller club fields add fun options too.

Lake Wanaka is rarely snowbound in winter meaning you can mountain bike all year or go for a swim if so inclined. My feeble back flip resulted in significant back slappage!A bracing mid winter dip into lake Wanaka - Luckily the water was too dark to see the giant eels swimming around.
