Tips for planning a winter guys trip to Wanaka

Join Ryan Ginns of Sydney, as he escapes the doldrums of city life for a mountain guys trip to Wanaka. Then, plan your own great escape.

Who is Ryan?

I’m Ryan, I'm 30 years old and living in Sydney, Australia. I have a digital media agency that operates predominantly in sports with a focus on the surf industry.

Can you explain what travelling with mates means to you?

Getting away with my mates is something I’ll always hold tight in my list of priorities. To be lucky enough to travel is one thing, to do it with your best pals is on a whole other level.

What is the best piece of advice when travelling to Wanaka with friends?

Catch a sunrise up at Treble Cone, drink local beer and book yourself a seat on a heli.

What is something you have discovered on this trip in Wanaka?

Other than how friendly the locals are, I discovered just how beautiful Wanaka really is. I’d been going to the South Island for years, but overlooked somewhere that I now intend on going back to for the rest of my life.

What’s your favourite spot in Wanaka and why?

The summit at Treble Cone speaks for itself. Boot pack for 20 minutes, take it all in and get a real fun line down.
