Now that our trip to Hakuba is disappearing into the past, we are starting to get our next ski trip sorted for this coming southern winter. We have done QT/Wanaka three times now and I suspect that we're getting to the point where those fields are a bit old hat (well, Coronet anyway, and I've lapped Cardies a million times). So we're contemplating Mt Hutt, but don't know a great deal about it, other than it has periods where it gets shut due to weather and it's a less 'touristy' option than QT. However, with the current travelling climate, we may stay domestic and head to Falls. The same questions arise, as we don't know a huge deal about it, other than last year it had bulk snow and all who went there had a hell of a time. I guess my question would be, for those who usually head over the ditch in winter, is there likely to be a push to Australian fields this year, in light of travel restrictions, etc an unknown entity (although winter is a while away yet)? And how does Falls compare to Cardies/Remarks/etc? I like to rip down the groomers and have a bit of fun in the softer stuff when the mood takes me, while my partner is now just dipping her toes into blue runs.
