tl;dr version: Is it worth going to CP for night skiing? Long version: I'm heading to Queenstown in July with the family. Breakdown of our sport/ability is as follows: Hubby (46): Has been skiing for most of his life with about a 12 year break before getting back into it last year. Was previously comfortably skiing advanced runs, but has knee issues now. He accidentally went off-piste from the Sugar Bowl chair last year, and while he handled it, his knees were screaming about it for the rest of the day. He found that he was handling blue runs OK. Me (34): Did the odd day trip at the snow as a kid through to my early 20s. Realised the value of lessons in my early 20s, then didn't set foot on the snow again until last year. Tried snowboarding last year, but gave up in disgust after about 3 hours. Swapped for skis and got an all day lesson the following day. I'm at the point where I haven't quite nailed parallel turns. I seem to start parallel and come out of the turn in a snowplough. I didn't attempt any blue runs last year, although the plan is to spend a couple of days doing lessons and getting to the blue runs by the end of our holiday. Mstr 9: First time at the snow last year. Skier. Did one day in Kea Club, then hubby took over the teaching for the rest of the trip. He started off riding the Alta Green and Casterway runs with a snowplough the whole way down, but we got him skiing parallel on the straight, and just snowploughing for the turns by the end of the trip. The plan is to put him in Kea Club for a few days during our trip this year. Mstr 7: First time at the snow last year. Snowboarder, regular stance. Insisted on snowboarding even though the minimum age for Kea Club was 8 (has dropped to 7 this year). He has autism and we didn't want to deal with the meltdowns that would ensue if we forced him to ski. We also didn't think it was fair to put that on an instructor, so we booked private adaptive snowboarding lessons for him. He took to it well and is apparently a natural at snowboarding. He can do J turns and falling leaf turns, but insists on having someone hold his back hand so he doesn't fall over. We haven't decided yet whether to put him in Kea Club with an adaptive volunteer or to go down the route of private adaptive lessons. So far, the plan for our holiday is to spend 2 days at Remarks where the kids and I have lessons, and hubby alternates between skiing and drinking hot chocolate. We were then planning a day off the snow (which falls on a Saturday). However, I like the idea of having a go at night skiing at CP. Obviously, this depends on whether Mstr 7 is able to at least board solo on the beginner slope. Is it worth going to experience it? We'd probably do one more day at Remarks afterwards so the kids can have one more lesson, then decide whether we wanted to spend our final day at Remarks or CP.
