Non-Skiing & Bad Weather

We’ve Got You Covered.

There are lots of things that make the Neon PomPom unique in terms of ski accommodation, but one thing that makes us even more unique is what we can offer for non-skiers or those who want to take a day out from the slopes. Of course, the priority is to get you up there skiing but sometimes, Mother Nature decides that no-one will be skiing that day, so we have invested a lot of time and effort in making sure we are covered when this happens.

Bad Weather Days What we call bad weather can often be exactly what we want! That amazing white stuff we call snow has to come from somewhere – and when it arrives, it often means that the mountains are closed while they sort it all out.

Luckily then, the Neon PomPom has you covered. On those days where the skiing and boarding if off the cards, we have a range of options that we have designed to be a little bit different to the usual tourist stuff. Whether it’s a wet lunch at the local apres-ski bar, a four-wheel-drive journey to our own bush hut for a barbecue or a blast up the Rakaia River canyon in our jet boat, we are firm believers that a closed mountain does not mean that fun takes a holiday too.

Non-Skiing Days Sometimes, we get a bit carried away on the slopes – especially when it’s good – and the body decides it wants a rest. If this happens, you can rest assured that there is plenty to do in place of skiing.

Whether it’s a massage on those stiff muscles, a scenic train ride, a session shooting clay-birds or a round of golf, we can make them all happen with a minimum of fuss. Our local knowledge and relationships mean that you’ll be looked after properly, so you can just sit back while we organise the day based on what you’d prefer to do.

Best of all, most of these activities and experiences are included as an alternative to the Skiing & Transport portion of the daily rate, so there is no extra cost.

When you stay with The Neon PomPom, you are on holiday – and this means enjoying yourself regardless of weather or weariness!
