The official kick-off to the New Zealand ski season is just about a month away but resorts on the South Island are already enjoying their first snowfalls. Over 30cm of snow has already fallen from the latest storm, which blanketed the high peaks of the Southern Alps. Cold temps this week will allow the resorts to blow snow, adding depth to their early season bases.

“Jealous much?. We’ve had some keen locals come up to have a play in the snow. A group of QRC Students trekked up the Meadows Express Chair and had 1 run down, and another local got his touring gear and dog out for some snow fun.” – Coronet Peak
