Powder snow, sunshine and uncrowded slopes are the combination that sets Ohau Snow Fields apart from the others. Ohau, as part of the Ohau Range in the Main Divide, is endowed with reliable snowfall and fine weather. From 2004 a double chair will be the main lift servicing the snowfield. There is also a platter and a fixed grip lift. The main trails and learner’s slopes are groomed regularly.
The “Boulevard” offers learners and intermediates an easy and fun skiing or snowboarding experience from the top of the chairlift down to the base facilities. The chairlift also provides access to a wide variety of slopes suitably challenging for experts and exciting for intermediates.
