Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!


Queenstown has been blanketed in crisp white snow today as an icey blast swept over the country.

Skiiers were deligthed this morning as they woke to see fresh snow blanketing downtown Queenstown. With overnight lows of minus 6, it was chilly in the deep south. Conditions on the mountains are fabulous with 40cm of powder falling on The Remarkables and more than 25cm on Coronet Peak in the past 24 hours.

"There were lots of `yahoos`, lots of excited people, smiles and high fives out there today with fresh snow just adding to the good times," said The Remarkables ski area manager Ross Lawrence (source NZ Ski website).

With cold but sunny days forcast for the rest of the week this is a great time to pack your ski suit and head south! We look forward to welcoming you to our winter wonderland. Contact our Travel & Leisure division for assistance with accommodation, transport and ski equipment including in-house ski equipment fittings.
