Wanaka 27.07.2016 (51 minutes ago)

Wanaka (said wanna-car), is a chilled little kiwi town which is dominated by a huge 192 kmlake. It’s a much more mellower vibe in comparison to it’s bustling neighbor – Queenstown. It’s kinda like the Margaret River (WA) township for snow.

Everyone hits the slopes when it’s on – tools down. It’s in their DNA to ski. The snow at the moment is a 8/10 so productivity has dropped and they’re all up the mountain, hunting a run.

My morning began with a 5 minute heli ride up to a unnamed cliff edge/rock with local photographer Mickey Ross. It would take hours to climb up there…so a Uber heli was superb. The views will be etched into my memory for a long time. It’s like shooting a beautiful model – you just can’t take a bad photo of the Lake Wanaka.

It’s pretty cold here at the moment. In summit wind chill it can get down to -9. Wanaka label Mons Royale make the best merino wool base layers that keep you unbelievably toasty.

I hear the surf is flat and windy back home…so I hope you enjoy these mountain shots.
