About the club

The Waiorau Nordic Sports Club

The club was founded in 1993 and registered officially in 1995. Originally named Wanaka Nordic Ski Club, and in 2013 re-named as the Waiorau Nordic Sports Club to recognise the area in which the ski field lies and to encompass all nordic sport enjoyed there.

4km Farm Ski

From 27 July, on Saturdays at 11:30 for four weeks, the club will hold a short fun event called the Farm Ski. The event is aimed at everyone – all ages and standards. A short 4km course within sight of the lodge that will be fun to ski. The idea is that you see your time improve from week to week on this standard course.
