Welcome to Wanaka. Welcome
to winter. Welcome to On
magazine… the return.
The sparkly and spunky guide you
are now reading had its inception
in 2001, when I ditched the glitz of a
television job in Auckland to return
to my roots in my favourite mountain
home. The reason for coming back
had a lot to do with what Wanaka is all
about. Like many locals, I’m hooked
on the snow scene, the proximity
of nature and the staunch sense of
community down here. There’s a
lot going on, which is frankly quite
inspiring. Cradled in the arms of
these Southern peaks, there is a buzz
and hum to this place that generates
an eclectic symposium of ideas and
events. From Passion for Fashion to
the NZ Winter Games, this is a town
that embraces celebration and the
chasing of dreams. It felt right to
create a printed platform from which
to showcase all the good things about
Wanaka’s dynamic culture.
What started as a weekly gig guide
has now metamorphosised into a
swanky, full colour omnibus of all
the exciting stuff happening here this
season. We hope you like it. Bridget,
Ju, Laura and I had fun making it.

inspiration
A gale of clean, bright wind is hurling
paint-yellow poplar leaves
up out of the grass
where the tree put them, or gravity,
or some meaningful chance;
they lift up the bank and over me,
they ride like pellets,
a careless hammering
of substance into substance.
The wind has been pouring for two days now,
it stopped this morning and I woke into
the vacuum of its silence: seemed yesterday
as if, if I’d gone outside,
I’d have been shot
by wilfulness, or at least
would have got a travelling streak,
a wild and unreasonable
message about change,
embedded in my head.

TC, Snow Park, Snow Farm or Cardrona? Where will it be, snow
explorer? A quick guide to help you decide.

www.treblecone.com
www.snowparknz.com

Thursday and Friday.
Terrain: Freestyle Skiing/Snowboarding,
Beginner 20%, Intermediate 50%,
Advanced 30%
Vertical drop: 110m Lift Pass: $84
Best run: Depends on how you are feeling.
Lots of Mojo: Big jump line, Normal Mojo:
Half Pipe, Low Mojo: rails and boxes
Secret spot: Cat riding in The Roaring
Meg.

Woolshed.

Juliane Bray.
Snow Farm
www.snowfarmnz.com
Distance from Wanaka: 36km
Vibe: Snow Farm on a fine day is euphoric.
The atmosphere on the Pisa Range is like
no other in NZ and maybe the world. Nordic
skiing is great! Let go of the fact that you
are on skis and just walk – soon you will be
gliding. Snowshoeing is an option and there
is good access to the Pisa Range for touring.
Terrain: 50+ km of trails.
Day Pass: $40 Adult
Secret spot: Backcountry huts.
Best thing in the café: The Woolshed
restaurant and bar 2km down the road.
Great food and exciting views of the
freestyle skiing and snowboarding at
Snow Park.

Juliane represented NZ at the Winter Olympic
Games in Torino (2006) and Vancouver (2010).

Camp 2 Sept 2 - 4

Distance from Wanaka: 29km
Vibe: European in terrain and attitude. NO MESSING ABOUT.
Terrain: 10% beginner, 45% intermediate,
45% advanced
Vertical drop: 705m (2312 ft)
Lift Pass: $99 Adult
Best run: Matukituki Chutes, but so many
awesome lines it’s hard to choose. I love
the terrain here, I think it’s the best in the
world.
Secret spot: Ridge above the six seater for
lunch and a pash.
Best thing in the café: Coffee and the daily
special.
Snow Park
Distance from Wanaka: 34km
Vibe: A mixture, everything for everyone.
Families are catered for extremely well.
Freestyle skiing and snowboarding have
been embraced here for many years and
I highly recommend checking out the Half
Pipe and the Terrain Park. This mountain has
supported NZ athletes to next level; this is
where my Olympic mission began.
Terrain: 25% beginner, 50% intermediate,
25% advanced
Vertical drop: 600m Lift Pass: $94
Best runs: Skyline for great views and the
Whitestar Terrain Park for the best freestyle
run in the Southern Hemisphere.
Secret spot: At the top of Captain’s Chair,
turn right, take off your gear and take a
10-minute hike north, up and along the ridge
to the rock at the summit of Captain’s Basin.
It’s the biggest rock on the ridge and in the
back of it there is a crack you can climb up.
When you get to the top of the crack, you will
summit this rock and find a primo picnic spot.
Best thing in the café: Pizza at Captains Café.

What is snowboarding?
Snowboarding is everything, it
can’t be described. But I guess
it’s that feeling you get when
you lay a slash into that powder
bank, or land that trick you’ve
been trying for weeks. That’s
what snowboarding is to me.
THE PULSE
with BASE team rider Tim Herbert
My northern hemisphere winter is what
some people call a long holiday. I spend four
months in the town of Frisco, Colorado. It’s a
small mountain community at the centre of
three major resorts: Copper, Breckenridge
and Keystone. I train five or six days a
week from 10am until 2 or 3pm with the
ISTC freestyle team. I get to stay at the
IAM (International Academy of Mountains)
with a bunch of other snowboarders. The
highlight of my season in the States was
definitely the house photoshoot with
photographer Jeffery Brockmeyer. Plans
for this season are to train all winter, get
some shots in magazines and compete in
the Winter Games.
Tim Herbert is sponsored by Groovstar,
BaseNZ, Ride Snowbaords, Smith Optics,
Stomp NZ, Dakine.

TREBLE CONE
IN THE SPOTLIGHT:::
Treble Cone is a favourite of local and
visiting snow lovers. Mother Nature sets the
scene: far-reaching boundries, unrivalled
views and unmatched terrain variety.
New this year is RFID ticketing system. Put
simply, this means no fumbling in pockets
to get your pass scanned. Instead, you
safely stow your new tcpass in a pocket
and glide through the lift gates where it is
read automatically. At the end of the day,
log in to the new tcpass website and check
out how many vertical metres you racked
up! Bought one day, but keen for another?
Recharge your tcpass online or pop into
the town office - no need to wait in line.
This season sees a lineup of epic events,
from ice sculpture with Absolut Ice on the
Plaza, to a jazz trio, to local snow heroes
hitting the mountain for the BASE Triple
Comp. There will be racing with Junior
and FIS level events, the hugely popular
University Games, Masters racing and
the Pump Mini Mountain, a weekend of
coaching and competition for our smaller
freeride stars. Closing Day, the 2nd of
October, is a favourite, with crazy dress
ups key for skiing springtime slush.
Check out our detailed events’ calendar,
snow reports, web cams, online store and
full mountain info at www.treblecone.com.

It’s a winter of sequels and remakes at the movies!
Here’s a few that are on deck for the coming months.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
The second half of the film version of the sixth Harry Potter
book. This is the eighth (yes, eighth!) and final Harry
Potter movie.
Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon
Autobots, Decepticons , Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy, and a
skyscraper gets eaten by a giant robotic squid thing!
Kung Fu Panda: Kaboom of Doom
Master Po, our favourite CGI Panda, returns in 3D. With Jack
Black as the voice of the most agile 125-pound mammal in
history.
Footloose
Musical cinema of the eighties gets a re-airing with a
new version of Footloose. Will star Kenny Wormald
update Kevin Bacon’s iconic warehouse dance number?

recession arts
drop the needles
So why the trend? For one, it’s relaxing.
What with peak oil, the Global War on
Terror and GE foods, we live in times of
high stress, and there’s nothing like the
Zen-like click, click, click of a knitting
needle to calm rattled nerves. It’s also
cheap. A Zambesi Utah Brushed Wool
scarf is a beautiful thing, but it will set
you back $185. Yet for just a couple
of Edmund Hillaries you can pick up
a ball of yarn and a pair of needles
and make your own winter neck wrap.
Knitting has a long history. The Ancient
Egyptians knitted “toe socks” and during
World War II the British Ministry of
Information produced a how-to booklet
on knitting to help counter wartime
cloth shortages. It peaked in the fifties
(think woollen twin sets) and declined
in the eighties, when presumably the
popularity of Lycra and parachute pants
temporarily sidelined woollen fashions.
Now it’s back. Stitch n’ bitch (SNB)
groups have taken off and have
spawned spinoffs like Stich ‘n pitch, an
American trend whereby you take your
gear to a baseball field and knit while
watching the game. Extreme knitting,
another trend, technically means large-
14 onmagazine
scale knitting using multiple strands
of wool and oversized needles (some
as big as broom handles), but has also
come to refer to knitting in strange
and awkward places (public toilets, top
of the half pipe) or taking on knitting
challenges, such as making a black
cable-patterned beanie in the pitch dark.
Knitting has even found an outlet in
street art. “Yarn bombing” has become
globally popular, and Wanaka has a yarn
bomber of its very own. “Knitsy”, as he
or she has become known, brightened
local streets this year with knitted
works appearing in trees, on bike
racks, on doorknobs and on sculptures
around town. The mystery knitter even
provided a pair of, um, ornaments for
the Breast Screening truck when it
was in town. Granny would be proud.
LAURA WILLIAMSON

Winter is cold, but it’s OK, because knitting is hot. Once something only
your granny would do, extreme knitting, stitch ‘n’ bitch and yarn bombing
have all entered the lexicon of this traditional craft, and its practitioners
are making kit that is a far cry from the baby booties and reindeerfestooned jerseys of the past.

the knitsy bitsy yarner knit up the water spout
down came the rain and night fell and she emerged
a bag of yarn and a pair of needles in tow

reminiscent of the yellow of a bright umbrella

CENTRAL OTAGO:
the scene
ue Ron
with Risq
Pinot Noir
LIFE ON THE EDGE
What is it about Central Otago that around the place. We have very low
rainfall, loads of sun and cool nights to
makes its Pinot Noir so delicious?
First, you have to understand what
sort of character the Pinot Noir grape
is. If Pinot was a rock star, it would be
the outrageously talented but petulant
variety, prone to mood swings, guitar
smashing and moments of blinding
brilliance. Pinot only shows its true
colours in a few tiny regions around the
world; it is so fussy that if the climate
is too hot or too cold it will just pack its
bags, trash the hotel room and leave.
Fortunately for us, Central Otago, is
perfect for growing Pinot Noir. It is
the only semi-continental climate in
New Zealand, thanks to the shelter of
all those enormous mountains you see
retain freshness in this delicate grape
variety. We are also the southern-most
wine region in the world, which would
be impressive if there were more on the
45° parallel than just us, the tail end of
South America and a bunch of whales.
How to describe the wine itself?
Suave, smooth, subversive, complex
and seductive - a bit like playing a Jeff
Buckley record on a date after the first
bottle.
PAUL PUJOL
Paul is the winemaker at Prophet’s
Rock. Read about his Pinot and his other
wines at: www.prophetsrock.co.nz
Winter food matches:
Slow-cooked lamb shanks with
Central Otago wild thyme
(it grows everywhere)
Baked local salmon and local game:
duck, quail or rabbit (they are
everywhere too)
26 onmagazine
Recently I’ve been doing some
research. The cool thing I’ve
discovered is that if you get your
timing right, you can actually
partake in an extended Happy
Hour tour of Wanaka!
Ron’s Any Night Happy Hour Tour:
5.00pm - 6.30pm: Cheap and cheerful
drinks at Wanaka HQ. This is the place
to buy a few rounds for your mates
because it won’t break the bank and
you might need to get a bit blurry to
ignore the garish decor. On the plus
side, there are pool tables.
5.30pm: Then checkout The Landing.
With a view out to Lake Wanaka, delish
apres ski menu and good range of
tap beers (it’s the only place you can
get Emerson’s), you’ll be stoked you
stopped by. Be sure to try their truffle
fries, and focaccia with dukka. Dress
sharp or you might stand out - in a
bad way.
In the interlude, browse the bars and
The Cow restaurant down Post Office
Lane. I would suggest a Raspberry
Martini at Barluga, a hearty pizza at
The Cow and if you’re wealthy or crazy,
an Aqua Vera followed by a Long Island
Iced Tea at Woody’s.
8 - 9pm: Late Happy Hour at Mint Bar.
Often with bands playing or a busload
of backpackers, it’s hard to go past
their $5 drinks. And $5 Lindauer in
a cute mini-bottle with a straw is the
best deal for the svelte ladies by far.
See you out and about, dear readers.

LOOKING FOR
ISNESS
WITH WANAKA ARTIST
ANNEKE STEWART
Stay close to nature, nurture your soul
www.wanakaliving.com
Lake Hawea Mandala by Anneke Stewart
A South Island nomad, Anneke Stewart makes art which explores theories
of energy, the force, the field, God, whatever you wish to call it. The ‘ISNESS’ is how she often refers to it: that life force which is eternally present
in all that exists.
Through her bright, lacquer-spangled prints, mystical mandalas and goldleafencrusted recycled timber, Anneke is attempting to capture the power of now.
Anneke is currently a semi finalist for the Waikato Museum Bold Horizon National
Contemporary Art Award, one of the most important in the country.
You can find out more about Anneke at www.sliceltd.com and read about her work
at www.annekestewart.com.
Catch her exhibition at the Toi o Tahuna Gallery in Queenstown from 28 October to
23 November. Or see her solo shows at Darfield’s Selwyn Gallery in September or
the Brunswick St Gallery in Melbourne this November.

What have you been up to in the local
music scene?
Over the last two years I’ve played twice
a week with The G.C.’s in Queenstown. I opened for Warren Maxwell at the
Rippon Hall opening party, and I played
at earthquake fundraising events in
Queenstown and Wanaka. Most recently
I have formed a rock band called The
Heist in Wanaka. Watch this space!
Where is your favourite place to chill
in Wanaka?
At my house with my kids.
UPSTAIRS WITH WANAKA BEATS
Head upstairs at Wanaka’s Kai Whaka
Pai café on Ardmore Street and you’ll
see more than just coffee being served.
The second floor is the headquarters for
community radio station Wanaka Beats,
which has been brewing up a blend of
music from funk to reggae to dubstep to
alt rock since 2006.
Wanaka Beats is a low-powered FM
radio station that provides Wanaka with
an alternative to commercial radio.
Broadcasting on 107.3FM in Wanaka’s
CBD, and 88.0FM throughout the
Wanaka Basin, ‘Beats’ puts on a diverse
programme of music and spoken word,
with a particular focus on all things
New Zealand. The station also keeps
its listeners up to date with what’s
going on around town and with local
personalities.
The station has existed as Wanaka
Beats 107.3FM since 2006, but has its
roots in Wanda FM, which broadcast
from various locations, including an
empty lot next to a ski shop, from 1998
to 2003. Beats now has a purpose-built
booth upstairs at Kai Whaka Pai, where
you can watch the DJs in action while
taking in views of Lake Wanaka and the
Southern Alps – a combination that is
hard to beat.

Album Review: Beastwars
creations
Want art? We’ve got it! Wanaka has a
thriving arts scene, with plenty to see if
you know where to look.
Gallery Thirty Three - 33 Helwick Street
Contemporary New Zealand artists in a
range of media.
Art Upstairs - Cnr Helwick & Dunmore Sts
Eclectic collection of original works.
Robert Anderson Gallery - Helwick Street
New Zealand watercolours and oils.
Metalworks Gallery - 54 Ballantyne Road
It’s not because they’re opening for US
giants Melvins, Kyuss and Helmet.
It doesn’t matter their debut effort
(available on vinyl and c.d.) is already
becoming scarce, that it was recorded
by Dunedin sound guru Dale Cotton,
or that the cover art is every bit as
epic as the music. It’s not because
Matt Hyde possesses one of the most
powerful and distinctive voices in NZ
rock today, that the rhythm section is
chunkier than a peanut slab, or the
fact that, live, they basically destroy
every other band they’ve played with
(including mine).
That’s not why Wellington four piece
Beastwars’ untitled album is one of
the most important recordings of the
year, and the latest to join the ranks
of groundbreaking Kiwi rock bands
alongside the likes of Jakob of Nelson
and Hamilton’s Arc of Ascent.

An intimate space in an industrial setting.
Nup. One word: Riffs.
Just when you thought the riffs had
curled up and died in Dimebag’s
basement, Beastwars bring them back
like blunt force trauma to the genitals.
Gone are the formulaic, limp-wristed
breakdowns and nauseating “melodies”
that have permeated practically every
rock genre. What you get is one brutal
track after the next, ultra sludgy groove
after another and not letting up for a
second. Plus a guy who sounds like
he’s got a rusty hacksaw blade in his
oesophagus.
While fruit hasn’t fallen far from the
stoner rock/doom tree, the rawness
and power of this band is hard to put
into words. I like Doomgroove, but you
can’t go around inventing new words,
that’s madness.

IT’S A 90’s GRUNGE OPSHOP THING with Daisy from BASE
Local kids Briar Hight, Milla
Arnarich (both 10 years old) and
Miriama Hight (13 years old) tell
us what they love to do in Wanaka.
So Daisy, what should we be wearing in
terms of snow outerwear this season?
Skinny pants are really starting to
happen, for guys and girls, thanks to
Groovstar and RPM. Longer length
jackets are all the rage, and we’re
seeing lots of colour blocking,
brights and pastels on the
slopes.
What is your favourite activity in
Wanaka?
BH: Swimming in the lake and jumping
off the wharf. Snowboarding!
MA: Looking at shops and visiting
friends.
MH: Paintball and going to the movies
at Paradiso.
What is the best park in Wanaka?
BH and MA: Dinosaur Park.
MH: Lismore Bike Park.
What sport do you play?
BH: Hockey and snowboarding.
MA: I love trampolining!
MH: I dance at Dance Wanaka and I
snowboard.
Best café?
BH and MA: Tangos.
MH: Kai Whaka Pai
Best restaurant?
BH, MA, MH: Lonestar.
Best run on the mountains?
BH : Snow Park – Halfpipe
MA: Cardrona– Skyline
MH: Treble Cone – Triple Treat
Off the mountain, what
would you recommend for
streetwear?
Clothing wise, it’s all about
longer length layering, longer
Ts and crewnecks rather than
hoods. Knitwear is massive
this year. This means cropped
chunky knits are big for girls,
and slouchy knits for the guys.
It’s time to use your iron for
something other than waxing your
board ‘cos shirts are au mode as
well. Double denium (sometimes
known as the Canadian tuxedo) is also
a good option for the more adventurous
dresser. Update your look with a faux
fur or sheepskin vest, and get some
Bo Boots on your feet. It’s cosy and
styley: win/win really.
And after dark?
When you’re at the bar for apres
ski, this is the time for leggings
and boots teamed with textured
layering. It’s a soft meets hard
kinda look. Think desert or
military style boots with floral
prints, a floaty chiffon or silk top,
complemented with a heavy cardie
or jacket and a slouchy beanie.
Guys - get your corduroy pants
and flannel shirt on and can’t go
wrong.
How do you suggest accessorizing
this season?
Long chains. Layers. Heaps of. More
is more!

I was born in the seventies and I live in the now, I love the outdoors,

Annabel Wilson
Annabel has a firm belief that skiing and writing are pretty similar.
Both hinge around the pursuit of the poetic line. She is obsessed
with creative projects like this and The Kiwi Diary (thekiwidiary.co.nz)
which she makes with her good friend Freda. She is stoked that ON
