The Alpine Experience - Lake Wanaka and Cardrona

This year we are looking to offer an alpine experience based in and around Wanaka. We will be staying at The Lookout Lodge and spending our days on the snow at Cardrona Alpine Resort.

The trip is open to all Middle and Senior School students who can either ski or snowboard and want
to enjoy skiing/riding on the mountain. While it is not designed specifically for intense race/freestyle
training, we can accommodate these students' needs through the HPC programme. The trip will be limited to 20 people.

When: TBA (first two weeks of July break)
Cost: $3,200 per student
The cost includes airfares, transport, breakfast, lunch, dinner, lift passes, coaching and
accommodation. This does not include spending money or any extra activities that the student may
choose to do.

Please note: This trip will only run if minimum numbers are met. Registrations must be in before the
end of February so that booking can be confirmed. The opportunity to make late bookings is not
guaranteed and may incur additional costs.
