In the July school holidays, I was lucky enough to take a group of 22 students and staff skiing to Porter Heights. We stayed at Porter's Lodge and it was amazing :). From the time we arrived we felt really welcome and nothing was too much of a problem for Lynn and her staff. Our accommodation was clean and comfortable and the kids really enjoyed the dormitory style of accommodation. The bathrooms were very clean and there was plenty of water for our numerous showers. After skiing each day, we would arrive back at the lodge to the smiling, friendly faces of the staff and were able to put all of our wet gear into the fantastic large drying room, chill out in the lounge area, watch DVD's, play cards or games in the room downstairs. Each evening we were served up a delicious meal followed by mouthwatering deserts all made by Lynn whilst we were still on the mountain. It was an awesome experience in which I know we will all remember for a long time. We will definitely be looking to rebook for next year.

“Its one of those places you don’t want too many people to know about! It has everything. A cosy high roofed communal area with pot belly stove belting out the heat. Lynn and Ross welcome you, make you feel at home and then stuff you full of nice dinner and breakfast. The building has all the other bits and bobs, drying rooms, outdoor hot tubs, ski store, games room and a great setting for your school group or holiday”. Tom Studd Greymouth High School HoD PE.
