Greymouth Barber

Chill out with the Barber

Take a chance on the Greymouth Barber – a razor cold wind that “cuts to the bone”. It isn’t easy to find an enhanced katabatic wind, and the Greymouth Barber is one of the few examples worldwide. Stand firm as the sharp blade of the wind followed by a stampede of fog and mist escape through the Greymouth Gap into the wider world. Ask any local and they will tell you “keep your hat on, or get a free haircut”. more
