Visitor Reviews of Aoraki-Mt Cook

Kane Henderson from New Zealand writes:

Great area to visit. Coupled with it's twin resort M Tasman, there is a run for everyone. For long blue runs try Linda on Aoraki, or Syme on Tasman mtn. Both service the Plateau hut. Advanced runs of note are Caroline and North West Ridge and Tasman mtn is famous for Silberhorn and Abel Janzoon. Double black legendary runs include Balfour on Tasman for steep and deep, and if you're lucky to be at the top of Aoraki when patrol drops the rope on Sheila, it has a heart thumping drop for the real enthusiasts. Not enough is reported on the terrain below Pioneer. Tired punters can follow the cat track that zigzags 900 vertical down Haast ridge, while the new Hochstetter terrain park will also deliver you toward the base. For a longer adventure, try Lender field off Tasman and following a coffee and a sit in front of the gas heater at Pioneer hut, continue down to the road on the backside. Transport can be arranged back around to the Mt Cook car park, or try a short helicopter flight. Vertical can range from 2700m on the main mtn, to 2500m on the backside.
