Kids and big buddies’ go for it on Queenstown luge


Rainy weather didn’t dampen the fun for kids and adults zipping down the luge for a Wakatipu Buddy Programme outing. 

The group – made up of 13 local kids and their adult mentors – spent a couple of hours testing their luge driving skills and bonding on a fun free day put on by Skyline Enterprises last Sunday. 

The afternoon was the first 2011 group outing for the Wakatipu Buddy Programme, which pairs adults with kids needing extra support. 

The free group functions – also sponsored by NZSki and Real Journeys – happen about once a term and provide an opportunity for the kids to have a treat and interact with each other.
