Default Ski NZ

I am going to gether a bit of a compilation for a NZ Ski trip I am looking at planning and I know a lot of people have been asking about NZ as well so I am going to run a few searches and ask for input about the ski fields located on the south island.

At this stage I am trying to decide what the best ski field is to go to, how they compare to eachother, or if it will be worth visiting a couple while we are there rather than sticking with 1 (we will be going for a week)

We want a field that caters for all, I like interesting terrain and don't care about park riding much, but a decent park would be good cause a couple of my mates are always nagging to hit it up.

Mt Hutt: Longest season in NZ, apparently most reliable snowfall. Can anyone comment on what stuff there is to do here when not on the slopes? This is what is making me lean towards queenstown simply because the town is a hive of activity and I don't think mt hutt can match that.

Coronet Peak (700 acres, 7 lifts): Interesting varied terrain
Remarkables (550 acres, 7 lifts): Good off piste stuff, good for learners
Cardrona (865 acres, 7 lifts): Awesome basin area for ultimate freedom
Treble Cone (1359 acres, 4 lifts): Longest runs, best for powder

Input appreciated, I know a few others will probably be interested in info compiled here, I will edit this post to include whatever relevent info I come up with.
