Club skiing in New Zealand is cheap, your airfare is the most expensive part.
6 nights accomodation with 3 meals a day
7 Lift tickets
and a few lessons ......
costs you only $620 NZD. That is about 200 pound, or $300 USD. Okay you have to take a sleeping bag, but you get to stay on the mountain which is rare in NZ. On the down side you have to use rope toes, but on the up side you don't share the ski area with many others. I've had Epic powder days with only 20 people on the mountain! This year they had their busiest day ever with 284 people.
And yes, WTFH, they have a bar. This year there have been a group of Brits that came and stayed on the mountain for over 6 weeks. The bar should make a good profit this season.http://www.craigieburn.co.nz/FGeneralInfo.html
