Visitor Reviews of Turoa

SkiwiLeCreep from New Zealand writes:

Turoa is a beauty, mate; you're going to have a rad time. Smoking all the kush from those chill lifties and patrollers are pretty chill most of the time. The field is skiable for usually 6 months of the year, unless it gets hammered by that wonderful rain. Heaps of backcountry pow almost as good as skiing mordor. But ,in reality, if you're going to bitch how bad the facilities are just start touring. Maybe ride it how it is. Newschoolers for life.
