Full review

We went up for 2 days 10/11 Aug 2009 Weather great spring weather at base but colder up at the top of Movenpick. winds NW and picking up around noon. good base but hardpacked on trail and crust/iicy off. Child facilities have improved this year with a magic carpet lift in beginners area as well as dedicated fenced children's play area and sledding run. They are boasting one of the largest terrain parks in NZ However the halfpipe wasn't up and operational. Hoping to get up next week for a day and then a few more in Sept. US skiers wanting a jump on their season could do a lot worse than come down under and get $1.50NZ for $1US. South Island definitely worth the visit too. As an ex-Canuck(BC) Queenstown felt like home!
