Snow overview for New Zealand

16 August 2018

After a period of clear weather, far more adverse and variable conditions were found over New Zealand in the last couple of days to the 16th August. The majority of resorts saw moderate snowfall refreshing pistes, especially those for whom it was their first new natural coverage in more than a week. Cardrona (72/148cm) saw some great conditions, helpful for the GB Park and Pipe team currently training in resort. Heavy winds across resorts, with some including Mt Hutt (45/95cm) forced to temporarily suspend all operations. Elsewhere, a mix of wind, rain and snow made it an unappealing couple of days riding despite the fresh snowfall.

The North Island saw some great fresh snow on the 15th August, further improving coverage on the upper mountain in particular. The weather broadly resembles that found further south, with a mix of wind, rain and snow. Freeze thaw conditions have left the off piste firm. Very limited visibility limited lift operations over Whakapapa (99/221cm)

Friday is expected to see a continuation of present conditions before a weekend of clear skies and warmer weather. After that, expect the snow to return in force.
