Visitor Reviews of Whakapapa

Brams from New Zealand writes:

Where do all these negative people come from? Auckland? It is amazing how dependent humans have become on the services provided by others. Once upon a time, before whinging was invented, there were no staff or facilities and our great forefathers Roy Turner and the rest never complained about walking and hiking everywhere and skied whenever the conditions allowed. These days with all of the forecasting technology and lifts and t-bars you have no right to blame bad weather or facilities for ruining your trip! On the other hand is the staff and the services which cannot be easy when you're dealing with a disgruntled bunch of pussies who sound like they have no idea about the true meaning of being in such an amazing alpine locale! Go down south all you haters, if I hear anyone complaining or being negative on my Maunga from now on I will personally escort you off the mountain so keep your disgruntled opinions to yourself and the complaints process! Stop ruining it for the rest of us and stay home or go somewhere else next time.
There's my negativity; take what you will from it but remember how lucky we are to even have a ski field at all. Kind regards, Jesse Bramley.
