Day 19 of no snow¬†in Queenstown ūüė¶ ……..

 The Crew and guests at Base Backpackers hostel Queenstown have their fingers and toes crossed for that first big dump to come. 


Everyone is getting excited to venture up Coronet and The Remarkables¬†and be the first to ride through the fresh crisp snow. We’re all waiting for¬†that buzz of¬†cruising¬†down the mountain listening to Glee, ummm¬†I mean Shapeshifter¬†album on our Ipod.

Even though we have no snow, the general buzz of Queenstown is keeping the smiles on people’s faces. With the vast amount of activities (over 600) we’re all managing to keep ourselves busy and entertained.¬†¬†Lets be honest, with the Queenstown night life, which goes off every night, no sane person can get bored.¬† The Altitude Bar is the best value, with¬† crazy games and prizes 7 nights a week.

Plus the sun isn’t always a pain, secretly¬†I think we’re all enjoying being able to sit outside with a beer on the sunny but chilly afternoons, and play around of Frisbee Golf or two. And we have got¬†Winterfest¬†starting¬†on the 24th June¬†(although I think it’ll be getting named¬†Springfest this year!!) Winter/Springfest will be EPIC!!!!¬†10days of packed to the rafters of activities. From a Masquerade Ball to the Festival street parade to the Qtown Mardi Gras, Coronet night concert (party up in the mountains), Dodgeball championship are just to name a few, it’s going to go off!!!

Happy Travels
