    I was happy to read about significant pow and calm conditions today...

    Cardrona - A bit of mountain fog & snow showers for the morning with little wind. Expected to ease in the afternoon. We have received 19cm of the fresh stuff this morning.

    TC - Treble Cone has enjoyed some fantastic snow coverage today! We've had 36cm of snow at the top of the mountain. The Saddle Basin, Powder Bowl and Summit Slopes have been closed all day and have received 30-40cm of fresh snow over the past 24 hours.

    A few days touring IVO dragonfly peak. Mixed conditions obviously due to the warm weather but finished off nicely with a fresh dusting and keeping above 1700m helped as well. Some big days to earn those beers.

    5 days in Canterbury and 3 based out of Lake Tekapo. Might consider doing a day at Ohau when we are in Tekapo, depending on conditions
