Can I have some honest, unbiased opinions on what conditions are generally like at Whakapapa in early July. I'm very familiar with NSW early season conditions but haven't followed NZ North Island conditions in the past. Would like to consider a trip there in the first week of July this year. Based on general weather patterns, how likey would it be that there would be reasonable skiable snow? Do they have any snowmaking there? (I'm not asking for actual predictions, just a general picture of how it is most years).
