Ohau Snow Fields is all about fun and friendliness where people are important. Being a smaller area you get to know the people on the hill. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere in the Day Lodge is one of community. Having skied down to the chair lift from the car park the "bottom lifty" will advise you where the best runs are and then he will be checking on your next run to see if he was right. The Day Lodge on the mountain has a log burner, a deck to admire the panorama, great food and espresso coffee.
