Wanaka is the relaxed sister to Queenstown. Surrounded by incredible scenery, boutique shopping and excellent restaurants and bars, it’s worth a visit. With multiple adventure activities and two ski fields, Cardrona and Treble Cone, all within 45mins of the township you’ll always be entertained.

Our terrain on the Wanaka side is excellent and is often used for film shoots due to the stunning beauty of the Southern Alps. It caters for all levels from Intermediate to Expert and is a mixture of big open bowls, steep chutes, rock drops and open space. Wanaka houses the famous Minaret Station which is a favourite for anyone who heliskis there.
