    I have been to Ohakune 3/4 times now. Quite a bit of history for our family as my dad was born around Raetihi/Ohakune and on one of our visits he showed us a bare section where once his family cottage was. Love the connection with this beautiful New Zealand tourist town. Would love to be able to take the ‘next’ generation down…..

  7. Marie Reilly

    I took my older grandchildren to the snow in 2008 in the weather let us down badly. We hardly got to do anything so would love to take my younger grandchildren to experience their first trip to the snow. Thanks for the opportunity.
