Wanaka Ski Accommodation for Groups and Families
The latest from Mountain Range
Wed, 26th Mar 2014
With the days getting shorter and the need to occasionally wear a jumper, the countdown is on until the ski season. This year Cardrona opens on the 20th June and the fun does not stop until the 5th of October. Treble Cone gets going on the 26th June and is operating till the 28th of September.
Skiing with the family is such a rewarding holiday and we are very lucky in Wanaka to have two fantastic ski fields plus the Snow Farm for those that like to get the heart beat really going with a spot of cross country skiing. All three ski fields are about a leisurely 40 minutes drive from Wanaka. You are able to hire all your equipment on the hill itself or from one of the shops in town who specialize in rental equipment. If you would like to split your time between the fields, consider getting a One Pass www.onepassnz.com
The ski fields close at 4pm, which is a great time to make your way back to the lodge and slip into the hot tub whilst someone else lights the fire. A quick shower in your own ensuite room and a change and you should make it back to the lounge in time to get a good position on a comfy sofa. From here- if you have played your cards right- a glass of red wine and a cheese board should be within reach whilst the log fire works its magic. Your ski gear will now be hanging in the drying room ready for tomorrow!
The lodge is well set up to have dinners in-house, with a large table that has heard many a story. If you wish, caterers can come in and cook up a feast. Another option is Lonestar Restaurant found just 250m away; this building also houses a boutique cinema and a climbing wall if you fancy a day off the slopes.
Many of our previous guests love the fact we are 2 minutes from town yet have lots of privacy and space. We are fortunate that we get a lot of groups booking their next years' Wanaka ski holiday on their departure, so you will need to get in early to secure your dates!
