What Our Guests Say

We can talk ourselves up all we want, but at the end of the day it is what our guests say about the Neon PomPom that really matters. In their own words…

Michael Doig, Christchurch, New Zealand – with six others in September 2012

I was one of 7 guys who stayed at the PomPom for our annual ski mission and we were not disappointed! Amazing chalet with friendly hosts who knew the local ski fields like the back of their hands. Each day we were treated to some of the best back country powder and club field skiing that NZ has to offer. An absolute highlight was the heli trip into the Arrowsmiths where we rode steep 1000m descents in perfect powder. I can not rate this experience highly enough, the perfect escape into unquestionably beautiful mountain terrain, followed up by a hot tub and great meal – how can you get any better. We will be back for sure.

“There is something about Kiwi hospitality that gets under your skin and keeps you coming back for more. Neon Pom Pom has those quirky Kiwi touches, the neon dressed mannequin in the entrance hall to start, that make you smile. Amelia Guild is a known Kiwi artist and has lent her hand to the bejewelled deer head above the fire place and the retro bespoke place mats on the breakfast table. Tom Dunbar is the man who can ski with a quintessential Kiwi laid back approach where nothing is a problem and Simon Guild delivers everything with a smile, and pours a mean cocktail. Throw them together in a swanky lodge with true European chalet style services and skiers and boarders need not lift a single finger all week, that’s got to be a good thing for weary ski legs after a long day on the unique New Zealand club fields. A class outfit. In one word? Go.”

Maggie and Mike Trayner, Kingston, Ontario, Canada – stayed in September 2012

The Neon PomPom ROCKS! Thanks so much for the memorable week! The skiing was great and we very much enjoyed being introduced to the local community. The meals were outstanding – thanks so much for the effort put into making them interesting and delicious. We will most certainly be spreading the word that your company is of the highest quality.

PS. Thanks so much for arranging the 30cm of powder!”

A group of eight of us spent four incredible days at The Neon PomPom. We couldn’t have asked for a better ski holiday. Our every wish was catered for – from heli-skiing to jet-boating. We wanted to explore the local club fields rather than the bigger commercial fields, and Simon and Tom were more than happy to be our guides. On top of that, Terrace Downs is an incredible location and the chalet rivals anything in Europe. We were more than happy with our Neon PomPom experience and have decided to make it an annual trip.

Olly Martin, Wellington, New Zealand – with  seven others in August 2012

My friends and I had a terrific experience at the Neon PomPom. Accommodation, hospitality, food and skiing were all top notch. The team there certainly know their stuff and directed us to some incredible skiing. We’ve already booked a return trip and have promised to make it an annual event.

Daryl Narayan, Sydney, Australia – with six others in August 2012

Thanks to the Neon PomPom for making our NZ trip an unforgettable one! The expert knowledge from Simon and Tom ensured a great time, you guys were perfect! Recommended to everyone anytime. You’ll definitely be seeing us again (unfortunately for you guys) haha 🙂
