Flavor of the Month: July


View of the ranges on the way to Cardrona
Last Sunday morning I flew with my Dad down to Queenstown, a surprisingly small skiing village in the South Island. What ensued on the following four days was mainly eating and skiing, with the odd bit of sightseeing thrown in. The village is great for eating out - my favourites include Fergburger, Winnie's Pizza, Amisfield Winery & Patagonia chocolates. But one cannot ignore it's true purpose. Thanks to a light sprinkling of snow on Wednesday, The Remarkables, Cardrona and Coronet Peak ski fields offered fresh powdery skiing for the week. I could say more, but I think the pictures below speak for themselves…
