We officially welcomed Stacey to our team today with her first day on the job...but it wouldn't be a Queenstown tourism job without getting out and about first for an adventure. Check out her Blog on Rafting the Shotover River! One of the many epic activities available to book at ultimatequeenstown.com

"If I'm not in the Ultimate Queenstown office or swinging a hammer, you may just find me here @skipperscanyonjet. Come for a visit." - Dave.

#BLOG It's no secret that I'm a water boy, so naturally canyoning was going to be right up my alley. While I've done a little bit of canyoning in the past it has never been on an organised tour and never on this scale. And now that I’ve had time to sit back and reflect upon the experience I think there is only one word to truly sum it up – EPIC!

A day in the "office" is not so typical for the Ultimate Queenstown team. Dave went to explore the Brown POW of Cardrona Bike Park NZ to test out the trails for ourselves. Tough job eh!

As far as jobs go I’m pretty sure my list may be hard to beat – Raft Guide, Jetboat Driver, Beer Salesman, Ski Technician, Kayaker and Builder. But there is one item in the list that keeps luring me back. As I bounce between jobs, countries and rivers, the purr of a Chevy V8 in your ear and the wind rushing past your face always seems to lure me back to the river.

Dave got out for a paddle with some of our mates, while I got the short end of the stick as shuttle bunny (lucky me πŸ€”). My turn next...
Doesn't take away from what a wicked backyard we have!

First Coronet Peak laps of the Summer. The legs weren't happy with me, but this view makes it all worth while. And the shred down rocks!

Summer days by the lake. Queenstown doesn't have to be expensive...a walk through the native forest and throwing stones at Bob's Cove is a pretty sweet way to spend some time.
