The week that was in Wanaka - Week 8

This week was one of déjà-vu all over again! Sun, sun and more sun. Two dozen days of bluebird skies in a row, not something we’re all that used to here in NZ’s Southern Alps. Under all that burning sun the snow has held up remarkably well, which was good news for this past week’s mock exam for L2. This was a great chance for everyone to get a real idea of how close they are to clearing the bar.

The week that was in Wanaka - Week 6

This week has been one of amazing snow, amazing weather, sunshine and ice water. Our Snowskoolers have definitely helped raise awareness of and funds for ALS / Motor Neurone Disease as almost everyone has been nominated to do an ice bucket challenge. It almost became competitive to see who could be the most inventive with late night dips in the creek, full-on lake jumps, buckets of snow and even one that followed a skydive.

The week that was in Wanaka - Week 5

After the celebratory weekend in Queenstown it was all go again as we got back into training for the Level 2. Monday and Tuesday were two of the best days to be had in New Zealand … not even just in a season but possibly ever! The snow had been falling for days and we got to play some amazing powder before more storms came in. We were well ready for the lovely, calm and sunny weekend!
