The Schools are Back in Town

Schools from across the region have been making the most of winter this week at Lake Tekapo. Alpine Springs has been host to numerous school groups coming through to experience the Ice Skating, Snow Tubing and Hot Pools. While the Schools are only on site for a short amount of time the kids certainly have the energy to experience what Alpine Springs has to offer. Its been great to see so many young children getting outdoors to try their hand at Ice Skating, a true test of balance. Snow Tubing as you may have guessed has been at the top of the list for visiting students to Alpine Springs.  A light dusting of snow last weekend was a welcome treat adding a fresh layer of snow on the park, leaving it in very good condition.

The Hot Pools and Day Spa have offered a welcome retreat all winter, a great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of work or study and remind yourself how good life can really be. As summer approaching and some great weather the Hot Pools have provided a great natural theater to watch the moon rise over Mt Edwards and Lake Tekapo.
