Kahu Youth did an overnight in the Bob Lee hut and it was amazing. The hut is very warm, comfy and has all the cooking facilities you need. The walk to the hut was very enjoyable and the stars at night were awesome.

Great spot with tremendous views. Great food and comfortable rooms. The dog sledding is well worth while. Just going to hear the 'dog choir' is an experince in itself. The cross country skiing is not as easy as it looks!

We spent three days here cross-country skiing after a gap of thirty years. The drive up from the main highway is interesting but not too daunting. The facilities and trails are very good.
