Hit the slopes th­ese hol­i­days

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL FEATURES -

Make the most of the epic snow on the Queen­stown moun­tains th­ese school hol­i­days. It has been a bumper start to the sea­son and right now con­di­tions up at Coronet Peak and The Re­mark­ables couldn’t be bet­ter. At the Re­mark­ables kids 10 years and un­der get free day lift passes and at Coronet Peak kids 6 years and un­der get free day lift passes. There is plenty to keep the kids en­ter­tained through the hol­i­days as well. Our mas­cots Spike the Kiwi and Shred the Kea get out on the snow most days dur­ing the hol­i­days. For kids who like to have a go in the ter­rain park the Re­mark­ables is host­ing the first of its Streets Mini Shred se­ries this Sun­day. This is a free event for kids 16 years and un­der and there are a load of cool prizes and give­aways for ev­ery­one who en­ters. The fo­cus is on par­tic­i­pa­tion and hav­ing fun which makes it one of the more pop­u­lar kids events on the moun­tain. At Coronet Peak the kids day out is a pop­u­lar day on the moun­tain. On Sun­day July 28 the Wonky Don­key man will be en­ter­tain­ing the kids at the base build­ing and there will be free face­paint­ing plus lots of games in the snow. This is a free event for the kids to par­tic­i­pate in so bring them up for some fun in the snow. Of course if you want to try some­thing re­ally dif­fer­ent night ski­ing on Fri­day and Satur­day nights is a great we to en­ter­tain the whole fam­ily. The at­mos­phere at night is to­tally dif­fer­ent thanks to the live mu­sic and the bra­ziers which peo­ple hud­dle around on the deck. Play around in the snow and then head in for a pizza and a drink. Night­ski­ing is on ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day, weather per­mit­ting, from 4pm – 9pm. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.nzski.com.
