Whakapapa ski resort:
“Went to Whakapapa Ski Field on Tuesday 18th July 2017 with the family; glorious sunshine day, a mass of visitors. There was chaos everywhere when trying to book tickets, but some staff were quite rude especially down in Happy Valley. When we asked the lady how to get tickets in the sledge area, she loudly stated, "I can't speak to you over this fence (a metal gate) get in front of me." Another area where we were waiting inside to get ski lift tickets, another of the staff confronts a group of us in line "Where are you going, I'm going that way pointing through us" It was more of the tone used in both these statements (which in my view reflected a touch of arrogance). Not wingeing just pure observation, that could reflect not good for our Maori staff.”

Afri-Ski ski resort:
“We had a super time at Afri-Ski. Stayed at Bagpackers (ed: backpackers?) with my wife and daughter. The atmosphere there was great; all got on well which is a lucky draw. The staff at the accommodation were efficient and friendly. The same can be said at the slope and ski rental place. Unfortunately, due to extreme strong winds +_ 60 km/hr the main ski lift could not operate for 2 days.
I think it is fantastic to have skiing available in Africa, within a five hr drive from Johannesburg.”

Mount Buller ski resort:
“I've been skiing at Buller for over 50 years. When the snow is fresh and the sky is blue Buller steps are as good as anywhere in the world, although much shorter. That doesn't matter as you just ski more runs.
The trouble is that Buller doesn't get good snow often, and the weather is windy and foggy more often than sunny, although visibility on the Southern slopes is almost always good.
A few years back Federation was extended and the poor snow now limits the usefulness of this run; its shorter and the Southside lift is not much good. This was the greatest black run in the mountain stuffed up.
Car parking and jeep access is now a scam as many comments correctly point out. There is a Nazi mentality and very poor customer service. Also, there is room for hundreds of 4WD vehicles on and off the village roads but they are kept clear for the jeeps (that could still work with parked cars but they haven't figured that out). The decision makers just feel panicked by the idea. They obviously haven't been to any European or North American resorts.
The mountain chairlifts are on the whole an odd collection that stop frequently. For some reason a Howqua Summit chairlift cannot get off the drawing board, despite that being a no brainer for advanced and beginners alike (and in an area that gets good snow and retains it). The poor cash flows from a short season don't help, but clever managers would canvass the government to build this tourist opportunity, or just prioritise better.
Food on slope is a huge stuff up. Kofflers and Tirol Cafe both under delivering, although Kofflers is run by lovely people and is amazing for getting the food out but the building needs to be replaced. Tirol food is also fine, but takes 30-45 minutes to get it and there is no room to sit inside. This whole situation is appalling.
The village is quite ugly due to poor planning. It interferes with the ski slopes, and the architecture and arrangement of buildings was designed to be unobtrusive, as if ashamed of what it represents. The planners must have never skied Europe or the US.
Buller: can't live with it or without it. It's easy to get to, ugly and problematic, but when it's good it's great.”
