New Zealand's #1 ski town and #1 bed and breakfast

Skiing and snowboarding in New Zealand takes place mainly during the winter months of July, August and September, with later September conditions more spring like. The most popular region to ski in New Zealand is the Southern Lakes district, which is home to the beautiful, picturesque, tranquil town of Wanaka.

Wanaka is a cosy small town that comes alive during the ski season. Wanaka is the main base for three of New Zealand’s top ski resorts, Cardrona, Treble Cone and Snow Farm. The town rests on the edge of Lake Wanaka, and offers spectacular views in every direction. The most popular one being the astonishingly calm lake with the soaring snow capped mountain backdrop. Just flawless.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay, just two streets back from the lake nestled in established trees and garden, is a gorgeous Bed and Breakfast called Te Wanaka Lodge. The lodge is just the perfect home away from home for your ski holiday in Wanaka. It has a contemporary euro-style ski flavour, complete with Après-ski for after your long enjoyable day of skiing.

In true bed and breakfast fashion, the breakfast is a magnificent spread of cereals, fresh fruits and juices, and of course endless cooked options too. It really does make for the ideal start to your ski day, at any of the three local resorts.

The three resorts offer terrain for all abilities, with Cardrona being known for its vast intermediate perfectly groomed runs, Treble Cone for its steeps and Snow Farm for endless cross-country trails. There is something for everyone here in Wanaka.
