Overnight the mountain tops were iced in white snow; it's cooler and mist clings to the hills. Yesterday we went up the skyline gondola to start a walk up from the top over to the summit of Ben Lohmond. Up there we had really nice views over the lake which is unnaturally blue due to glacier waters and 'rock flour' sifting through the water. An …

Aspen Lodge in Queenstown has all you want. Great staff that always help you with your questions. Its a friendy and cosy place close to Fesh Choise supermarket and it takes just 3 minutes to walk to the town centreYou will for sure find some funny people to hang around with. I had my best week ever at Aspen Lodge when I stayed there in february 2012. Staying in the 8 bed room with ensuit bathroom was the best room.

enjoyed my stay there welcoming staff and good place to hang out. Good distance from town centre not too close so disturbed by noise but close enough to nip to go to a bar or shop.
