Developing New Zealand’s first on-mountain village
The vision is to expand Porters into the adjoining Crystal Valley to create New Zealand’s largest and most accessible intermediate ski terrain, within one hour of a major urban area and international airport. In addition the proposed development would have New Zealand’s first on-mountain village with gondola access to the ski area.
