Snowplanet is a great place to take kids who are learning to ski but I would like to see a half way platform in the snow on the left hand lift so that people who are beyond the magic carpet but not good enough to all the way to the top can get off safely. There should also be a... More

Visited Snowplanet as a complete beginner and had a fab time. Price is reasonable and the lesson was really good. A good fun few hours whether you're a beginner or already have snow skills!

This is a great place to spend an afternoon. This was our very first time, and although we had tried skiing on real slopes once before, we are complete novices. We booked a lesson and the instructor was very patient. That was an hour, and then it was skiing on our own for the rest of the afternoon. A very... More

I planned this as a surprise outing for my daughter's 9th birthday (tubing only) and it was a hit! She enjoyed it immensely and so did my 12 year old daughter and myself too :-)

We had our Christmas function at Snowplanet and it was awesome! Had lots of fun and the food was delicious. Staff were fun, bubbly, friendly and super tolerant of our "merry-ness"! We all loved it!

We were really looking forward to a trip to snow planet but then realised it was going to cost us $400 for a family of 4 for 2hrs (for equipment and clothes) and no ways we were going to pay that! Better off waiting to go to the real snow! It wouldn't be quite as much if you had your... More

Cool fun for whole family ! Don't plan on less than 4 hours. You will probably spend here whole day! There is gear hire in place including snow shoes for ski and snowboard. Open till late. Restaurant in place offer good range of food and drinks.
