Today we braved the road down from Mount Cook towards Queenstown. The Mount Cook road was only covered in snow for 10 km's and then it became very easy driving - Jacqui was happy. But then we saw how much snow had dropped everywhere and realised we would need to drive slowly and head for Wanaka. We arrived in Wanaka - which is a ski gateway to the Treble Cone and Cardrona - unfortunately both where not open so we couldn't go skiing We can alway try somewhere else. Wanaka is really pretty there is another lake and lots of mountains. We stayed in a really nice lodge for the night and we ended up at a bar that sold some nice beer - Monteiths - delicious.
