Take it all in. The never-ending blue sky, with snow capped mountains as far as the eye can see, reflecting blues, purples, reds and gold. Pull on your goggles for your final run. It’s been a day of days. Back at the One Cay Ski House, the log fire is roaring as Chef prepares another stunning meal. It’s true what they say about New Zealand. It really is heaven on earth. Stunning, fun and equally laidback, here at the One Cay Ski House you can be as adventurous or lazy as you want. Snowboard one day, heli-ski to the lodge’s mountain-top chalet the next or simply sleep in, lay by the fire, read a book or enjoy a nearby winery.

Travel Details

Wanaka Map

Sitting on the banks of clear blue Lake Wanaka, the One Cay Ski House is surrounded by majestic beauty. Mature trees planted in the 1850s, endless skies, awe-inspiring mountain ranges and perhaps some of the Southern Hemisphere’s finest ski fields, Cardorna, Treble Peak and Mt. Aspiring are within easy reach. Surprisingly cosmopolitan, Wanaka is also perhaps one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets with most travellers opting to stay around the Queenstown area which in turn helps maintain Wanaka’s reputation as a skiing and snowboarding purists’ paradise. You won’t be disappointed.



After a full day of shredding the gnar, the One Cay Ski House is the perfect place to relax. Strikingly designed in timber and glass, the lodge is warm, welcoming and decorated with a mix of antique and contemporary furnishing. Each guest room is replete with floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing sunlight to flood in and bathrooms boast deep bathtubs where you can enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir as you soak in the stunning views of the lake and mountains.


Accommodation includes: Helipad, Outdoor spa pool/hot tub, Lakeside walking trails, Billiards & games room, Library, Massage room, Ski storage & drying room, Guest office, Heating and air-conditioning, Wi-Fi
