Jafal said:Seeing a small red Suzuki SX4 make it nearly all of the way with no chain to the drop-off zone at CP before sliding into the ditch, and then everyone ignoring him because he was an idiot was quite funny really. Only to then have a Britz camper in front of me as I tried to drive down with his front wheels turned sideways slding down the hill, so he stopped before he hit something (Wise) except he stopepd in the middle of the road in front of me. Then a Ford Territory comes up past him, only to stop just beside me, with chains on the front and his back wheels spinning madly.
the rental companies need to do a much better job of letting peopel know what wheels on a 4WD to fit chains too.

I assume you are around for a few days after that in case the weather prevents flying? Can never guarantee anything booking a single day.
Never skied with them, but they have been around a long time and know what they are doing, so they should be good. But can't say they are the best.
These guys have reviewed various Ops.

nisstrust said:Hey Guys how does Mt Hutt on piste skiing compare to say Mt Buller on piste for variety and number of terrain, having not been to any NZ resorts before, its hard to guesstimate from trail maps.
