    NZ has a large enough snow covered area to have substantial regional variability. Australia might be ahead of the southern lakes, which have had a very ordinary season. Buy it's a totally different story in Canterbury, particulalrly in the east.

    Yeh whoops! I haven't really been paying attention to NZ lately, especially since snow.co.nz seems not to be updated

    All this snow at the Canterbury fields is great but your looking at 10+ closed days each month due to these storm fronts.

    Turoa, that looks fantastic. Is the snow still like that and what is Manga?

    BBB, do you like the outside/inside style? Look at the shadow and it looks like it is becoming more popular :)
