    Thank you OON, that's awfully kind. They aren't very big at all....but are big enough to sustain permanent snow in winter. The highest in view is Mt Hector, which is somewhere around 1500-1600m. Apparently in some countries they still think in "feet", and it is just over 5000 of those rather obscure measures.

    The rest, not too sure, but open tops implies above about 1100m - they look in the rough region of 1300-1400m to me.

    Thanks...I think it's the most scenic main city in NZ, but doesn't really hold a candle to the backcountry.
