Here is a link to the snow graph of the remarkables: The Remarkables Snow Graph
There is one for coronet as well. Mid august is the best time to do NZ from my experience. I have had some pretty good Pow in NZ but mostly pretty average conditions. There was no comparison to the conditions when I went to Japan (Hakuba).
I would skip NZ and stay longer in Japan.

The start of the season looks like it will be great thanks to a couple of big dumps, one a week or two ago, and one over the last few days which is still going.
In the last couple of years I would've said August as the early season snow hasn't been great, although generally things are looking up by August. This season I think you should be fine whenever, it looks like it should be a great season from the get-go. Cardrona has had something like half its average annual snowfall already before its even opened! Just avoid going mid July during school holidays.
Kind of a lottery as to whether you get any decent pow days though. Fingers crossed.

Powder in Queenstown NZ first week of August???
I'm trying to plan a trip back to Queenstown NZ. Trying to decide if I should go with a few friends in late July or Early to mid August. Anyone know how the conditions are so far down in NZ? August still a good month to ride the mountains around Queenstown?
