Perfect if you miss the snow hard in June. Worked the season 06 and will be back 07. If you like to hesitate, there is a lot of untouched terrain. The lifts only go to about 2300 meters so it's just climbing to the top and enjoying.

The weather is, at least, indefinable with many closed days. The snow is quite wet, but some pads can be found every now and then. It's really hard riding so one's technology is developing enormously.

The rental is a bit of a joke when it comes to the quality of the equipment. Hopefully better till 07. Come in to the ski shop and say hi.

The lifts are being upgraded and some new ones are being built to make it better and better. The park is better on the other side, Turoa, but is quite ok.

Largest in New Zealand. 5-6 hours from Auckland. Modern facility with 17 lifts, serious park and competitions. Cool also that it is on a volcano that had eruptions just 6 years ago ... There is a boiling hot water crater on top for those interested.

They usually have so much snow so they usually drive the lifts at Christmas (New Zealand's summer) and a month ahead. So jäääävla fun! Check out if you are in NZ in the summer. Possibility to hesitate.
