Visitor Reviews of Ohau

Jonathan Bowen from New Zealand writes:

Great field that, although not big, makes up for variety and is in no way boring; plenty of advanced runs if you want them. Had some of the best skiing in the country here. Some great runs off the top ridge for a 20 minute walk. It's not crowded, with a relaxed atmosphere and accommodation at Ohau lodge - located at the base of the field has accommodation from back packers to beautiful rooms overlooking the lake, mostly built I think in the 60's / 70's and retains that style. Great bar and social dinning; open log fires. Twizel and Omarama are the next closest accommodation centers about 30 min away. Mad not to drop in for a couple of days if in the region. Very beautiful area.
