The dying days of skiing in New Zealand, but still great snow around

“The good news is its SNOWING we have received 10cm of snow at Top of Summit!!!” says the Twitter from Mt. Hutt.  The bad news is we have had 15mils of rain in the base area.” 

It is incredible to think that they are still skiing in New Zealand while Autumn inches its way in here. Although that’s in France… in England it’s flooding in! Poor things… but in New Zealand they are still enjoying halycon conditions.

Stand up and be counted if you want to Spring ski in New Zealand

So much so that they are asking for your support to keep the resort open into the Spring. Half price tickets are already on offer and all sorts of fun and games are planned, such as the Pond Skim, Bikinis for Breast Cancer, Gladiator, etc at Mt. Hutt on Saturday…

… and the 2nd Streets Mini Shred competition on Sunday, 30th September at The Remarkables.

Sensational snowfall this winter resulted in a two-metre plus snow base at Mt Hutt and they feel it would be a pity to waste so much epic snow which means they want as many people as possible to get up there and enjoy themselves. For this reason, 50% all-day mid-week passes are available until the end of the Season.

The Remarkables’ final weekend will be the 6th – 7th October when they will hold their Spring carnival. There will be loads of activities to participate in, including the annual Pond Skim and for the kids – Spike and Shred will be out enjoying the weather as well.

Coronet Peak is closed today due to rain, but the snowpack is still good. “The piste has held up well, but will need a little time to drain. See you tomorrow!” they say.

Anyway, it’s nearly your last chance down there in the Southern Hemisphere – get out and make the most of it before thinking of following the snow to the Northern Hemisphere!
