Visitor Reviews of Mount Olympus

kikapu from Canada writes:

Rudeness in New Zealand is not something I have ever experienced in 12 seasons working at various areas around the place, so it was a surprise to experience it here, and from an employee too.

It was my partner's first time on a nutcracker and the patroller, who shall remain nameless but didn't have a Kiwi accent, refused to help when I asked and told her she shouldn't be there if she can't ride a lift. She's a tough girl, climbed and ski toured on 6 continents and everyone struggles at first with these things.

Anyway, we left pretty quick and went to Temple Basin, where everyone was super fun and the skiing was great. I'm sure Mt Olympus is awesome too and no doubt they've sacked Mr Grumpy by now. If not they should have.
