Wicked fun on a rainy day 😊 Rating: 5 out of 5
Great place. If you are learning to ski or snowboard, start here first. Cheaper than going to the slopes and closer if you live in Auckland. Being indoors means you don't have to worry about weather, and if you get cold just pop out of the slopes to warm up. Rating: 5 out of 5
Great 'indoor' fun. Nice place to eat and drink after a couple of hours skiing. Instructors are helpful and provide great training. Rating: 5 out of 5
