We visited Snowplanet with my son's pre-shool. Parents and kids had lots of fun. Personally I think normal prices are a bit much and not achievable for many families, but thanks for the pre-school's discounted rate we had a great value and loved Snowplanet. Well organised place with a great bar area and restaurant on site.

Having worked up an appetite, i ordered the big all day breakfast, poached eggs for $16, with a long black whilst waiting. The coffee was fine, just a tad too cold. The breakfast looked great on arrival, however, the eggs were hard boiled and the bread was only toasted on one side, not even partially toasted on the other, with... More

Great facilities, lovely staff and and three lift systems make this a great day out. We went during school holidays but arrived about 7pm to avoid the holiday programs and general daytime rush. We got lots of skiing in and the kids really progressed well. My only beef would be that due to being much colder at the top off... More

We went for my nieces birthday party and all went toboggan riding. Was actually inner tire tubes. We had little ones that after a few rides could go by themselves. The equipment and clothing was good quality too. Great food as well. Lots of fun had by all.

We stopped into the cafe mid morning for a bite to eat and a coffee, the coffees took far too long and arrived cold, the muffins were stale (not fresh), the tables were dirty ie they hadnt been cleaned and meals and plates were still there from the last person.

We've been to Snowplanet countless times. My family loves it. Last year I fell and broke my tailbone. It was excruciating and two staff members came to my aid. I told them it was broken and they just told me to lay there until I was ready to move. They left me there to find my own way down. I... More

This is an awesome facility near to Auckland, that offers 'learn to ski' through to those with experience needing to practice. You can hire everything there or take your own and the staff are wonderfully friendly!
