I got back about 6 weeks ago, 8 day trip. MY GOD it was good. Funny thing is there wasn't a single kiwi in sight. Everyone is Australian or a Kiwi.
Coronet, easy to drive to and it is AWESOME fun. I worked up the guts to skii down the hard route, the top one after three days there. I so want to get back there. By the way if you've never been to the snow, if you're doing hard out skiing/snow boarding you only need Tshirt, shorts and a snow jacket and pants. You get VERY VERY hot there. First day I was wearing a singlet, long sleeve shirt, jumper AND a snow jacket. I almost died of heat. Oh you will need a scarf and gloves lol, durrr.
