Don't approach a goat from the front, a horse from the back, or a fool from any side..

isn't it more likely to have a massive cold front and get a ridiculous amount of snow then get very little?

we went to queenstown last year and they are better then australia. Its still pretty warm over there so you wont need massive clothing. Fergburger is a must for dinner. Remarkables is a must. Coronet is good if they have had a dump.
Night skiing at coronet is a waste of time 1 run is open and they have instructor people in the middle telling you to slow down = too crowded wit slow people.
Im going late july when you going

Haven't been to Reavers lodge so cannot comment on that.

I hope you are there before the 15th of July as that is when NZ school holidays start. Which makes the slopes very packed. (I made this mistake last year.)

However I do agree with tangles Fergburger is a definite must for dinner or the 3am walk back to the lodge. As is hitting up winnies for a feed, and a few teapots at world bar (if you turn 18 by then).

I found Coronet crowded but better then Buller on a weekend, agree night skiing is a waste of time.

Remarks is great when there is a dump, no high speed lifts and they stop them for everyone that falls off dismounting so it can take 15 - 20 mins on a bad day. But a very diverse amount of runs that makes it a good choice.

I never got to Cadrona but everyone said it was the pick of the mountains. (Where I am going this year)

Treble cone is great for skiers and the advanced boarder I have been told.
