Hanmer Springs Terrain

One long poma (807 metres) takes you to the top of the mountain from where you have several choices of run. A rope tow will take you up the shirt front for a shorter, easier run - rope tows are a dying breed, protected only in New Zealand because they are cheap and easy to run. Once mastered they are dearly loved and very much worth the effort of mastery. Great for those who love a challenge! Slopes are generally wonderfully uncrowded, and the skiing after a fresh fall is a dream for the advanced skier.

Hanmer Springs Snowboarding

Beginner boarders find the rope tow and poma difficult but intermediate boarders will love the off piste riding. Jumps are built for you with our groomer when there is plenty of snow and there is quite often a natural half-pipe formed.
