Visitor Reviews of Porters

Steve from New Zealand writes:

One of the biggest vertical drops in NZ, I think. Awesome on powder days. Easily accessible backcountry, with easy traverses/short hikes out. I've had a season pass for the last several years, and am definately not sick of riding this field.
