Wanaka is the perfect base for your New Zealand ski holiday, with 4 very unique ski areas: Cardrona, Treble Cone, Snow Farm & Soho Basin all located within a 40-minute drive from the town centre.
Wanaka’s only accommodation directly on the shore of Lake Wanaka
Edgewater lies right at the water’s edge of Lake Wanaka. It is the perfect destination for guests to experience Wanaka’s wonderful winter season. The crisp mountain air, characteristic of the winter months, promises pristine snow on the surrounding heli-ski mountains, the alpine ski areas of Cardrona, Treble Cone, Soho and the Nordic ski area – SnowfarmNZ.
Edgewater’s resort amenities include a restaurant, bar, sauna, spa, gift shop and on-site ski drying room, not to mention the free parking and heli-landing pad. The Element Edgewater Day Spa provides relaxing massage treatments after a day on the slopes and Wineglass Café offers the ideal après ski atmosphere. A fully cooked and continental breakfast fuels skiers up in the Sargood Restaurant each morning. And for those not wishing to drive up the mountain, all ski related transport providers pick up and drop off guests from Edgewater via arrangement.
Edgewater is a perfect base to ride at Cardrona, Treble Cone, Soho and Snow Farm. In addition the Edgewater Resort staff have genuine local knowledge to make recommendations for making the most of your stay in the Wanaka area. From visiting Wanaka’s boutique township on foot via the lake trail to renting bikes; visiting Puzzling World for its collection of optical illusions, its maze and its cinema; or simply taking the day off from skiing & snowboarding to simply relax close to home with stunning lake views and a visit to Rippon Winery right next door; the options are plentiful. For exploring further afield, a day trip to Queenstown is only 1hr drive away, and on your return leg try the alternative Cromwell route via the Central Otago vineyards at Bannockburn… long lunch and wine tastings anyone?
