New Zealand resorts opening in June, pack your bags

Check out the timelapse nom nom. FYI all skiing is above the treeline in NZ.

So excited! I'm trying to resist getting out the wax and iron.

This is my "local" resort, three hours drive

Guess Turoa is even further for you! Good memories of Whakapapa though. Out west is one of my fav spots

I'm thinking of doing one or two day missions to Ruapehu this winter, I'll shout out here to see if anyone wants to meet up. Not sure how many North Islanders there are here!

Got a week booked in for Wanaka in August too. Should be awesome.

Need at least 2 metres of base on Ruapehu for a good season!

I hope we get more crazy weather this month with plenty of snow...
