Merry Christmas to all from the team at Alpine Springs! It truly has been a merry start to the festive season with the arrival of New Zealand’s first Summer Tube! Arriving on Tuesday 20th December, the guys have been very busy putting together the Tube Park. With everything going to plan the Summer Tube will be up and running early next week, just in time for New Years!
The new facility will make tubing a year round experience at Alpine Springs, with Summer Tubing over the warmer months and Snow Tubing running from June to October over winter. Summer Tubing is the latest summer craze in Europe and Alpine Springs is proud to introduce the first one in New Zealand.
Using the same course as the winter park, the tube slide follows a similar shape and is sure to be a fast and exciting ride for people of all ages. Alpine Springs is now offering a new range of Summer Combos. Great deals that ad even more value to your Lake Tekapo experience.
Another exciting event coming to Lake Tekapo is the Tour of Timaru Speed Skating. This involves a range of inline skating races featuring numerous world champion skaters from around the globe. On January 9th they will be visiting Alpine Springs for two separate races, first at 9am and another at 1pm. The rink will be closed for a short period of time as they race around the rink. Come along indulge in a coffee and enjoy the spectacle of world champion skaters in Lake Tekpao.
So much action in an already busy time of year! The staff at Alpine Springs have been working hard, round the clock over recent months preparing the facility for Summer and 2012. Family changing rooms, kitchen renovations, summer tube park and so much more. Well-done team!
Come along and enjoy the facilities at Alpine Springs this summer, now offering a full range of summer activities for everyone, Hot Pools, Day Spa, Sauna/Steam Room, international size Skating rink, Café, and New Zealand’s First Summer Tube!
Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
