"An intricate", complicated and at times contentious
development beside Lake Hayes will come under the microscope
again next week when four resource consent applications are
heard simultaneously in Queenstown.
A fortnight from now, one Queenstown man will be testing his
mettle against some of the best in the world at Cardrona,
when he comes out of retirement to represent New Zealand in
the Winter Games skier cross.
It was being called the greatest day of skiing at the
Remarkables this season, with hundreds converging on the
field to make the most of the 35cm of fresh powder snow which
fell in the 24 hours to yesterday morning.
