    I presume you mean "What is the date we will first have skiable snow?".

    Well "YES"
    I'm certainly hoping this isn't our first "Winter with no snow"
    Still 3 days to go on the first option and that isn't likely is it?
    I'm hoping JK is wrong and it comes earlier than that. I'm hoping for July 7th myself as I can't get up until then

    I'm often wrong. So don't worry about it.

    I'm going for July 13, only because I can't face the thought of travelling 7,500km and shelling out five grand to spend a week drinking coffee and watching grass grow.

    This one. That's both ways, for two of us - "on the cheap". I've been to NZ a few times and it costs more, whatever anyone says.

    Bless you.

    From another who always makes the most of whatever nature brings.

    Don't complain. Just enjoy.

    Life is too short

    Thanx snowduck, shame I don't own roller skis, but what you say is true for most of us.
    Who was it said "Grab life by the horns and hang on for the ride"??
