What a rush! Easily the best thing I've done in NZ yet! Serious trails! And with a whole day of biking I improved massively by the end. Can't wait to go back, I'm hooked!

After the amazing drive up the mountain we were met by fantastic staff. They couldn’t have been more helpful. The apartment is great. The meal was delicious. Although it is the off skiing season it is still worth a visit. There are plenty of activities to keep you amused.

We have been overseas and come home for our holiday. We took this opportunity to visit this fabulous fairly newly built activity bike/cart/walking park. It looks SO different in summer. We are used to seeing the area covered in snow. What an amazing new activity. Great fun, good coffee at Mezz Cafe. Staff are fabulous, so keen to show off whats available.
