Wyndham Vacation Resorts Wanaka, in New Zealand’s Southern Lakes region, is gearing up for one of its busiest snow seasons yet, after more than 60 centimetres of fresh powder was recorded at Cardrona ski field base area just a day before the season’s scheduled official opening. Heavy snowfall over the past few days has ensured the start of the 2013 ski season will be the best in a decade, enticing bumper crowds of skiers and snowboarders.
Nearby Cardrona ski field has now opened and the popular Treble Cone ski field is on track to open on June 27. Wyndham Wanaka Resort Manager Craig Walker said the falls meant a huge start for the season, and easily the best the region has seen in ten years. “There is a great vibe around Wanaka at the moment and the town is really buzzing about this year’s snow season. People are already queuing up at the ski hire stores, eager to get out on the slopes,” he said.
Perfectly located near some of the world’s best ski fields and boasting breathtaking natural surrounds, Wanaka is the ideal place for a ski holiday this winter, and the word is quickly spreading. Mr Walker says now is the perfect time to book flights and accommodation so as not to miss out on these fantastic snow conditions. “The phone is already ringing off the hook, as travellers take advantage of what’s shaping up to be an incredible season, with school holidays just around the corner,” he said. While there have been heavy snow falls across the region, weather forecasts are predicting fantastic weather this week for brilliant blue sky skiing. Away from the slopes, Wanaka offers a host of incredible adventure activities, gourmet dining and sightseeing opportunities, for the complete holiday package.
