I'm from Brisbane and missed out on skiing this past winter. Obviously I won't be skiing overseas in the next few months so I'm desperate to get on skis next SH winter. I would like to go to NZ for a couple of weeks in August and hit up the hills around Queenstown and Wanaka but to do that I will have to commit to airfares and lodging and importantly NOT commit to airfares and lodging at Jindy/Thredbo/Perisher etc. Am I best off playing it safe and booking for here in Australia because travel to NZ may still not be possible? Or do I roll the dice on NZ and hope for the best. In your opinion what chance are we of travelling to NZ in August?
