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?

Open for XC. I don't think it has been open for lifted skiing/riding for at least 3 years....??

Was going to post some photos of skiing Powder Valley and 6.1 at Rainbow yesterday, in 30 cm of fresh, but the camera battery went flat after one photo.

THIS IS THAT PHOTO!!!, showing the busiest lift queue I've seen all season.

Only 12 days to go, until it's over for another season.

An unfortunate victim of circumstance am I -won't be able to make the last weekend of the season. Particularly annoying as there is about 40cm+ of snow forecast for the next couple of days. Fare ye well Rainboew-see ya next year

Managed to get some of the kid's phone photos of a 30cm of new snow last sunday

SSW sudden stratospheric warming this year = 1 mega august & 3 late season blizzards ... 2800m volcano facing the southern ocean.

RAL season pass sale - they just very controversially shortened the Turoa 20 season by a week ending earlier, many unimpressed.

but ... Turoa will be sweet, tomo - Mon ...

I've got to say Broken River has the best written ski reports on the Met Service Snow app, and I haven't even been there yet!
