awesome time! we had a group of 12 of us. A good group which made the trip. Me and Jim were the only usa guys there. Jim's a good guy. We had a blast, the snowboarding was incredable! good weather, and the tour company we used was probably the best in NZ! Our Guide Steve was a trip for sure. Will go again for sure. I've been to Chile, and had more fun in NZ, and it was less expensive as well. Def recommend to anyone! And NZ is an awesome country!!
