Winter Festival – July 3

Speight’s Dog Derby

Take a bunch of high-country farmers, a pack of hounds and a ski-slope and what do you get? Organised chaos and lots of laughs.

Coronet Peak becomes a mountain of madness as farmers and dog owners race (or get dragged) from the top of the mountain to the base building in the nation’s only dog derby on snow.

You really have to see it to believe it. Definitely worth taking a break from the slopes for.

Lindauer Laughs

Don’t miss the last comedy event of Festival. Te Radar, Jeremy Corbett, Dai Henwood and Justine Smith are charged with making you laugh until you can’t laugh anymore.

Open your mind ‘cos these guys are dab hands at taking things to the extreme.

All inhibitions should be left at home.
