New Zealand 2012 - Day 5

Day 5 was beautiful scenery on the way and snowboarding with strong wind and low visibility in the mountains:

New Zealand 2012 - Days 3 & 4

Day 3 looked pretty much like day 2 in terms of snowboarding, but with some differences though:

Day 4 was quite different - walk to the Shotover River near Arthurs Point:

The walk:

Finished the day 4 with some nice NZ wine:

New Zealand 2012 - Day 2

We stayed at the Shotover Top 10 Holiday Park that is located here:

The place is beautiful and is very convenient if you use own transport. It's easy to get to Coronet Peak by using NZSki bus from there or from the Coronet Peak Hotel which is further up the hill.
Little issue will be to buy tickets to the NZSki bus. Tickets are not sold by Shotover Top 10 Holiday Park and you will need to buy it in Queenstown or at the following hotels: Coronet Peak Hotel, Shotover Lodge.
Here's the link to mountain bus details:
It's very convenient even if you travel with children and don't hire a car or don't have your own transport.
