Mountain crew at Mt Hutt in Canterbury and Coronet Peak and The Remarkables in Queenstown are celebrating the arrival of even more white stuff over the weekend.

Mt Hutt now has a base of 110cm after receiving 50cm of snow at the weekend. The high country ski resort has enjoyed more than 170cm of snowfall over the last 10 days.

Dave Wilson, Ski Area Manager for Mt Hutt, said it was the best early snow the ski area had had in decades.

ďIíve been working at Mt Hutt for eight years and Iíve never witnessed falls like this so early in the season,Ē he said.
Mt hutt facebook just said that its likely that they'll open early

Looks like I've chosen a good year for my first year, with a good cover of snow already. Excellentttt.

What's the go with Mt Ruapehu claiming to have the longest vertical descent in Australasia? 25 minutes??? Where abouts is that? Turoa? I MUST SEE THIS.

Cardrona is seeing a great deal of snow for May - apparently the most they've seen in over a decade.

SNOW

Snowbase (upper): 120 cm - Snowbase (lower): 80 cm - New Snow: 0 cm




Booking my flights and trip to Cardrona/ Remarkables this pay day... I don't think there will ever be a happier time for me to see an empty savings account! I'll be living from pay week to pay week for a while.

Gorgeous photo taken from the base area in mid-May:

Do explain the grabaseat deal! Is this flights? I managed to find return flights to Christchurch from Brisbane for $380 Aussie dollars.. about $430NZD. Not bloody bad, a bit of a special going on at the moment I think!
