    Hi All,

    I need to shoot over to NZ for work within the next fortnight and I am wanting to know and keep up to date with the following:

    a) Which resort has the most snow/open terrain

    b)Snow forecast Summary for the country

    Does anyone know if there is a place in these forums to get this info or if there is a website that will give me all of this?

    Thanks.

    Depends where you're going? Canterbury - Hutt seems the best option now but a lot can happen in a couple of weeks. Southern Lakes - Cardrona, Coronet, Remarks fingers crossed should have something up and running?

    Statistically 8 out of every 10 reported incidents of a cat / dog chase show the cat in pursuit of the dog.

    Beautiful up there, so peaceful. Lots of nice terrain to explore too if you want to fix your heel on the way down.
