Where there a 3-4 times now this summer when I worked at the neighboring ski resort!
Is a really charming place with karisma! The terrain in the area is very good! The chair lift is extremely slow but offers nice views of Lake Ohau. If you want to hesitate, there are many find fields to put their tracks on! Runs a relaxed tuning that is felt. Check out the Swedish Ski Federation's pennant in the cafeteria!
Do not forget to pick up the snow chains! The road up is steep !!!
Good place!

This is a so-called club field (less commercial ski resort, located across NZ) is really far to hell, 3-4 hours from Queenstown or Christchurch. The journey is cozy in itself, as you pass through the desolate, but charming New Zealands hilly landscape.
At the foot of the mountain you will find the small Ohau Lodge, where you get the bedroom, dinner, breakfast and lift pass for the affordable price of 500 kr. Charming hotel with alpine feel. Here you will find a fireplace, pool table, darts and outdoor whirlpool which you can slide down after a hard day on the mountain with a purchase from the bar. 25 kr for "jugs" that is a liter. Love NZ!

The road up to the lifts is crazy. You should check the brakes, spare tires, water and oil levels before taking your little skirt, newly purchased backpackers up the more or less vertical road. Snow chains can be a plus. Bus is available though.

Ohau has the longest trailer in NZ! Oh! Over 1000m, a bit hard maybe, but there are max 100 people on the mountain and you will never stand more than a minute in a row!
Fall height and slope are clearly respectable. There are hottest rockdrops all over the mountain and you can sweat out of hell without being afraid to crash with some blueberries.
Unlike other club fields, some slopes are pisted and there are organized jump but otherwise off-piste. Do you like to take the board on your back and tear you will find incredible lines and the magical "story of the ring" views.

Keep track of the weather report before you go. If you have a bad luck, the plant can be closed for several days in a row followed by storms. Go here for a dump, when fucking rock it!

I strongly recommend it, though it's damn basic, it's a high factor and adventurous sense of Ohau.
