Visitor Reviews of Ohau

Michael Gibson from New Zealand writes:

Totally agree with the last review. The views coming down the ski field are stunning - one of the prettiest places I have ever skied! The terrain is also interesting too. In fact the terrain park was empty the day we were there, as there are so many natural features and jumps across the mountain. Has access to great back-country with a little bit of hiking onto the top ridge. This is a very special ski area, well worth a trip!
