I am not a Kiwi- a Brit living in Oz actually. I was in Wanaka on the South Island last week for my annual fun in Kiwiland. It was great as usual and we started with a powder day so that was good. I spend most my time at Treble Cone as it is an amazing resort with lots of great terrain. Also had a day heliboarding in Mt Aspiring National Park which was wicked. Back in Oz now and we are having great snow here too so off to Mt Hotham, one of our resorts in Victoria at the weekend for more powder.
Once the season ends it will be time to book Niseko in Japan for northern hemisphere winter. I never realised living in Oz would give me so much access to snowtime! Its ace!
