It's that time of year again, the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder, this can only mean one thing, winter is coming! We love winter at Porters and can't wait this year - it will be one for the books. Check out our on-line store and get your early bird season pass to make the most of this winter. This sale only runs until the end of April, so don't miss out on our fantastic prices. Get a pass for the whole family from just $1198 - you won't find better value than that at any commercial ski area in NZ. Our fantastic training academy and junior race program is now taking bookings at the on-line store. Sign your children up quick before the spaces fill up.
It has been a big summer but we are nearly there! The rope goes on the Easy Rider chairlift next week. We are in the middle of extending the cafe outdoor area, which will incorporate a gourmet hot dog hut and bar. We now have a centralised power generation site, removing the need for noisy generators in the car park, and our fantastic new learners area is in its final landscaping stages.
As you can see from the picture above, we have carried out extensive terrain shaping. Easy street is now very wide and the beginners and intermediate areas are directly connected. This has given us one of the best learner progressions in the country, perfect if you are just starting out, or, wishing to perfect your technique.
We hope everyone is looking forward to winter as much as we are. We cant wait to see everyone up here for their first ride on Easy Rider. Dont forget to buy your season pass before the the end of April if you want to get the best value.
