We went yesterday (24th nov) and there was still some snow and had a lovely walk up with amazing views. Sometimes the best things to do are free. Certainly was one of the best experiences I've had whilst in queenstown.

The road up was a bit hairy in places and at times I could see the need for snow chains. It's on par with Turoa. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We were often greeted with a cheery "Good morning!" or "how are you...More
