Visitor Reviews of Manganui

Binnybarbs from New Zealand writes:

A family friendly field, with a little effort required to get skiing (walk of 20min, 10 min to good lift). Sealed road all the way to car park. Lots of snowboarders - in fact they tend to outnumber skiers in this surfer dominated province. Some of the cheapest skiing/boarding in NZ - full lift pass is NZ$40! No frills skiing. Some exhilarating lines on "top-tow" when it is operating. Public Day Lodge and new Club Lodge for SMC Club members. Club Lodge is, however, open to the public for accommodation on mountain (sleeps 30) - you need to book.
