  • Staff are absolutely amazing! It's the main reason we chose it over Treble Cone. Good range in ability groomed slopes, great food, (the noodle bar is pretty fantastic) and I have to say it again... Staff are excellent!
  • The best ski resort in New Zealand. I love the snow park with jumps, pipes and rails. Perfect!
  • An awesome snow resort - great facilities, the staff are excellent and the food outlets serve very good food. I highly recommend eating at Mezz Cafe for dinner if you're staying on the mountain.
  • Great ski field with probably the most diverse range of slopes for all abilities and ages in the Queenstown area. Very family friendly. Main downside is that it's basically a full day's trip to get to. This does have the benefit of a nice sleepy coach ride on the way back; but it will eat into your timetable.
  • Great 18 hole disc golf course! But for now, bring on winter and decent snow :-D
