  • Went to Whakapapa Ski Field on Tuesday 18th July 2017 with the family; glorious sunshine day, a mass of visitors. There was chaos everywhere when trying to book tickets, but some staff were quite rude especially down in Happy Valley. When we asked the lady how to get tickets in the sledge area, she loudly stated, "I can't speak to you over this fence (a metal gate) get in front of me." Another area where we were waiting inside to get ski lift tickets, another of the staff confronts a group of us in line "Where are you going, I'm going that way pointing through us" It was more of the tone used in both these statements (which in my view reflected a touch of arrogance). Not wingeing just pure observation, that could reflect not good for our Maori staff.
