World Nomads Travel Insurance
Eating On Mountain The main day lodge at Hanmer Springs ski field has a small cafe that serves the very basics. The fare is pretty much a few meat pies (delicious by the way – Kiwis do have great meat pies!), cans of drink, chocolate bars, potato crisps etc. Coffee and tea are available self serve for NZ$1. The hot water is in a big dixie on the combustion stove. A ladle provides the means to access the boiling water. There are definitely no coffee baristas here!

All other food is BYO, but you can use the kitchen. There are toasted sandwich makers so bring the makings for toasted sangas and Bob’s your uncle. Who is Bob any way?
