What's it like at Craigieburn resort?
Craigieburn Valley Ski Area, located in the heart of New Zealand's Southern Alps, has achieved cult status amongst NZ's hottest skiers. Steep deep and cheap. Three high capacity rope tows service a vertical rise of 500m. Terrain at Craigieburn Valley is varied, exciting and challenging with the infamous 600m vertical descent of Middle basin, which is often compared to a heli skiing experience, accessible by a short traverse from the tow. Wide open powder bowls, steep narrow chutes and when you come off the hill at Craigieburn at the end of a big day, kick back in the bar at our cosy alpine lodge.

Hi Snow-Forecast team, you have a great site and we use it often.
As some more information, Craigieburn and Broken River ski areas are next door neighbours!! It's an easy ski over to Broken River from Hamilton Col at Craigieburn (5/10 minutes, depending on conditions) and a 1/2-1hour walk (once again, depending on conditions) back along the ridge line from Broken River to Craigieburn. So in essence, Craigieburn and Broken River are the closest resorts to each other!! In fact on a topo map our main lifts are 2km apart!!
Hope this is of some use.
