For the visitor there is a range of gift and souvenir shops in which to browse and find that special gift to take home as well as something special for yourself.
A supermarket carries a wide range of the foods you need if you are catering for yourself. The local butcher also carries prime cuts of quality Canterbury meats. There is a Medical Centre, which is open all week, along with a dentist and physiotherapist and, of course, just across the road, a stocked pharmacy, which also has film developing facilities for all those shots you keep taking of the one that didn't get away or your friends on skis for the first time.
There is a children's creche operating in the centre of town and the children are minded and entertained by fully trained professional people who will take great care of their charges while you relax and enjoy a day on the slopes.
