Way down South

Wow the South Island is awesome! We had a very engaged group in Queenstown, and by far the best food yet. The trip from Queenstown to Invercargill was interesting – we paid the most we have ever paid for a coffee, at Lumsden of all places. Auckland Viaduct Basin prices in Lumsden my friends!

The Invercargill group was a great bunch. We visited Bluff, as you do when you’re down that part of the world. Stopped the car, took a photo, turned around and started driving north. Interesting place…not sure what Lushy sees in it, but each to his own.

We loved Invercargill, especially the big umbrella. The people were great and hospitable, but just make sure you tell them you’re not from Auckland. Heaps of people down here have heard about Xero including taxi drivers, hoteliers, lifties, and even the pizza guy.

Ok, so if you’re after a ski report it goes something like this: good snow at Remarkables, but it’s a bit of a limited field. Cardrona is low on snow but the jumps are better than ever…and Coronet lives up to its reputation of a hard fast ski field that will turn your legs into jelly.

After visiting Central Otago and the beauty of Southland, you can really understand why people live down here.

Thanks Southland we hope to see you all again soon.
