  • Great place, excellent for skiing or boarding. This ski field in particular is very well suited and is one of the best ski fields for beginners all the way through to the advanced. covered magic carpet, easy slower chair lift with longer very wide runs and gradual decent for beginners. large space and variety of slops and jumps for Intermediate. Advanced slopes and shoots for experienced expert. If you find this comment helpful please give like. enjoy your day.
  • A very long winding road up the mountain with many hairliqne and steep side drops. The wife wasn't too happy but on the way there were many viewpoints to stop at. The tarmac road ended 9km before the ski resort that is On the other side of the mountain so we turned back as I didn't want to cause any damage to the hire car. Well worth the trip to see Queenstown from the other side.
