Wanaka is a great place, great for families, great mountain views, its a good central location as well, to visit many other interesting locations and attractions

Had a great day up at the Snow Farm - fanastic beginner lesson and then time to explore the trails before having fun at the Snow Zone, kids loved playing in the snow as did the grown-ups!
