Rob Roy Glacier, Wanaka

This was our “off-day” trying to relax and rest up but we spent it hiking!! Sooo much more tiring than snowboarding as well! Picture on the bottom right is what we spent these couple of hours looking for… worth it? hmmm… *no comment*

Brunch at the Federal Diner, Wanaka

This place sounded cute and had decent reviews so we decided to come here on our one off-day. Oh how disappointing!!!!

Coffee was average (as in it was ok, not amazing not terrible) but the food was the bad kind of average!

3 of us got “The Monk: Eggs Bennedict with Salmon” for $18 and I think the fourth got “Hawea Flat: Spinach, Mushrooms, Tomato and Haloumi on Polenta Cake” for $18.

I expected smoked salmon but it was a slice of overcooked salmon fillet!! And both my friends’ eggs were way overcooked! How can you get a poached egg wrong when you’re a brunch spot!!!! Disappointment!!!

A foggy day at Cardrona
But the most amazing snow!!!! As with Coronet Peak - willing to sacrifice visibility for powder. Apparently one side of the mountain was closed the day before (mechanical issues with the lifts) so it meant the snow was perfect!!! Love

Treble Cone lunch - so carby and fatty! “But you’ll burn it all off anyways” - what a nice excuse to eat without worries….
