I have skiied at Turoa since it began and it is my preferred field on Ruapehu. I have owned a property in Ohakune and I have stayed, shopped, eaten there throughout. I had seasons passes for years then I upgraded to a life pass when RAL was raising funds to build new lifts. The letter from Ohakune businesses raises some good points which I agree with, however the comments about life pass holders are very very poor and offensive. Shame on you for writing such garbage and denigrating some of Ohakune's best patrons.
