Quite recently I’ve heard of another case where a real estate agency has convinced a landlord to up their rent to almost twice the original price, due to “market worth”, this is outrageous! The tenants, having lived there for a couple of years, of course had to move out because they couldn’t afford the new and improved rent. Another win for the “economy”, another loss for Queenstowners (and that’s just one of many examples of landlords meeting the all knowing market worth).
Skiing can be an expensive sport for local families, but with reduced price season passes, this winter is an excellent opportunity to explore this sport and take advantage of what Queenstown’s alpine environment has to offer.
The Wakatipu Ski Club was born out of the love of skiing in 1947 and today provides an affordable gateway into the wonderful world of snow sports for its members. Our core reason for existence is to offer local families a comfortable base on the mountain to enjoy snow sports and to facilitate learning to ski or board through programs provided by NZSki.
