Winter in Wānaka

Winter ushers in the spectacular snow sports possibilities in the Wānaka region.  The premier ski fields of Treble Cone and Cardrona along with New Zealand's only Nordic ski area, Snow Farm Cardrona. are all within easy reach, making Edgewater Resort a perfect base for winter adventure.  

The ultimate snow experience is heli-skiing and snowboarding.  The sky-piercing alps surrounding Wanaka beckon all winter long.

The world renowned ski resorts of Coronet Peak and The Remarkables are approximately one to one half hours drive away, near Queenstown.  Queenstown's international airport has numerous direct flights from the East Coast of Australia.  What could be easier!

All ski resorts in Wānaka and nearby Queenstown are open from mid/late-June until early October.  So don't delay making your plans and bookings.

After a long day of skiing or snowboarding, where better to rejuvenate than the welcoming warmth of Edgewater in Wanaka.

Here are just a few services Edgewater offers for ski and snowboard guests:

  • Overnight ski tuning service
  • Rental deals with town ski shops or concierge services from Snowpro.
  • Ski rental concierge service
  • Gluewein and great apres ski atmosphere in the Wineglass Cafe
  • Ski drying room
  • Spa (undercover) plus sauna room
  • Parking right outside most rooms - convenient with all your gear
  • Ski resort, road and weather reports posted at reception and on your in-room phones each morning

For the non-skier, the crisp winter days are perfectly balanced by the southern warmth of our friendly staff. Relax by a roaring fire, and tantalise your taste buds with our seasonal menus at the Wineglass Café. Our baked to order gourmet scones are not to be missed.

When it’s time to enjoy the outdoors, you can experience Wānaka's clear winter skies and marvel at the sheer beauty of our snow-capped peaks. Whatever your activity choices, there is something to experience at Edgewater Hotel during the crisp winter months.
