Snow overview for New Zealand
Monday 26 June 2017

In New Zealand there was some good skiing on Monday 26th July, however, there is still a feeling that the season is yet to really get underway, and this is somewhat compounded by the fact that a number of the smaller ski fields are yet to open for the season.
On the South Island around Queentown, Coronet Peak (10/45cm) and The Remarkables (30/60cm) have seen fresh snow and improved conditions over the weekend, and the latter is now running all lifts apart from shadow chair, meaning that Homeward Bound run and the Chutes are still not ready to ski yet.

Further north at Mt Hutt (39/62cm) is was an amazing day of clear skies, and the on piste skiing is currently is fantastic shape.

Mt Lyford (25cm) now plans to open for snowsports on 29th June. Porters (5/15cm) is now planning to open on 28th June. It was snowing on Thursday and this was forecast to last across the end of this week which should improve conditions in time for their opening. It was also snowing at Treble Cone (5/10cm). The resort has not yet released a revised opening date but this week’s return to more wintery weather should help. Mount Dobson should open on 7th July, followed a day later by Mount Olympus and Rainbow.

On the North Island, Whakapapa (10/25cm) is open in the Happy Valley beginner’s area. The upper mountain is scheduled to open on 1st July, along with Turoa.

Cardrona is a great place for family. The mountain is set up for kids. We had lessons with Chrisy Bradshaw. The best lesson, she is great with the kids, she really knows her stuff. Cardrona is the best place to ski in NZ the staff are so friendly. Make sure that you take your Camera.
