It is awesome to be back! Iris had a ski day up at Treble Cone, loved it and plans to get back out soon again. Gary the chief guide and his ski touring and winter mountaineering team Linda, Rob and Kerryn are having some excellent weather in Mt Cook National Park. The Alpinism & Ski climbers bunk room has now a written sustainability tip attached to the towel basket, thanking guests to participate in being environment friendly at the base:

NOT one towel per day – BUT one towel per stay

The local tracks and view points are beautiful as always and the ‘eco’ guided trekking excursions are on offer again, in the immediate areas around Wanaka, the lake and Clutha river, a half day walk in the Matukituki valley exploring the Diamond Lake loop track or a full day trip to Mt Aspiring National Park and Rob Roy glacier cirque.
